Course Content

Fundamentals Of A Pitch Deck

You need to build a pitch deck that hits all the points investors are most interested in. Investors hear thousands of pitches. If your deck doesn’t hit the key points you might not even make it into the room.

Determining The Story

They say all marketers tell stories. Every presentation is a story. Telling a captivating story is crucial to keeping your audience hooked and interested.


A frame is the instrument you use to package your power, authority, strength, information, and status. Presentations can be in a power frame, analyst frame, time frame, and prize frame. How should you frame your presentation?
