Getting to Wow!  How to Dazzle Investors and Customers

You may have a brilliant innovation, but if you can’t get others excited, it’s dead.  In the real world, you generally have only 20 or 30 seconds to convince your prospect.  You can’t pull out your elevator pitch.   In this workshop, Bill Reichert will talk about the difference between a typical pitch and getting to “Wow!” –  getting your prospect excited about what you are proposing before you even get to the second slide.  He will outline a proven framework to help you be more effective getting your message across.  Then, if there is time, attendees from the audience will try to get Bill to say “Wow!” in 30 seconds.  Please come ready to pitch!
