Pitching/Presentations

“I want you to say, or I want you to convey, that you are going to die if you have to, with your very last breath, with your fingernails scratching as they drag you out.” David Rose

I’ve come across some really great stuff for pitching and presentations that you might want to take a look at. They are relevant for entrepreneurs, teachers and anyone who has to make presentations for work. 

This first one is from David Rose’s TED talk. link   He describes the 10 things you need to know about yourself — and prove to a VC — before you fire up your slideshow. David Rose is an expert on the business pitch. He has raised millions of dollars as an entrepreneur and as an investor has funded millions more. 

Here is another really good one from Scott Belsky from Behance, who was named in Fast Company’s list of “100 Most Creative People in Business.” It’s a little longer (abt 30 min). link This is on Cofounder.tv which has a lot of other great videos for startups.  Their tagline is “Top-tier management education minus the tuition.” It’s a site you can get stuck on for hours.
