Description

A 100,000$ presentation

7 years ago I was not a presentation expert, I just wanted to have my startup funded and to realize my dream. So I studied every resource on the subject and, more importantly, I presented my story everywhere, each time I had an opportunity. In may 2008 we were invited as finalists at TechGarage, the most important italian startup pitch competition. That day we were looking for 100,000$ seed capital. At the end of our pitch 10 people in the audience raised their hands to be the first to fund us with 10,000$ each. We also won the first prize in every category.

This story was on the first page of the most important italian economical newspaper. From that day a lot of people began asking us to teach them the secrets of killer presentations. This is how the PowerPitch method was born.

How boring can a presentation possibly be?

I’m sure you know the answer: there is no limit.

On the contrary, how much effective can it be?

A presentation can change your life. For sure it changed mine. When I first started talking about the idea for my new startup I was sooooo excited each time I told it to my friends and colleagues! I soon realized that apart from my excitement, I was not able to convey everything I was seeing beside the idea. A clear vision of my project was missing.

When I say "presentation" often the first thing that comes to mind are slides, templates, fonts and animations. Nahhh...

Whether it’s about:

  • Doing a pitch for a startup
  • Convincing a big client
  • Getting more sales
  • Getting a promotion
  • Getting any audience to do what you want

Presenting means selling

But even before selling, presenting means having a clear vision and being able to convey this vision to your audience. Although there is nobody that can have the vision in your place, this course starts challenging and helping you to refine the edges of your vision and then leads you step by step toward conveying it, with all of its power, to the people that can help you transform it into reality.

When you are presenting effectively you are creating a sort of direct communication tunnel into your audience's mind. Once this tunnel is open you have the trust and engagement of your listeners on your side and they are ready to do anything in their power to help you achieve your goal.

It’s a kind of art, but it’s not something you are born with: there are some easy, actionable techniques you can learn.

Presentation masters and business communication teachers

We are Matteo Uguzzoni and Augusto Pirovano, we are presentation trainers, consultants and game-designers. Livello7 is our company.

We started 7 years ago, as entrepreneurs bringing our projects around Italy and Europe to find investors and clients, presenting our story everywhere. That experience was our training ground, and was the field where we learned how to move people into action through presentations.

After funding our first project, we developed the PowerPitch: a course to build presentations that can change the world. We have given our courses @ Impact Hub, Unicredit Group, Domus Academy, Changemakers for EXPO and many others.

We are passionate about presentations (translation: geekly/nerdy and obsessed) and we are always glad to help people achieve money and success through presentations: this is our holy mission!
