Storytelling With Numbers
You have to pitch for money for your business or project. You have to tell your boss you deserve a raise. You have to explain why your project is going to be successful. In order to get to X (numbers), you’ve got to explain Y (why).
This training speaks to the humans who believe numbers tell the story AND to the humans who believe stories tell the numbers. Looking at both sides to ensure everyone gets the information they need, you’ll be able to craft a presentation from the story the numbers tell in a succinct, simple, and manageable way. You’ll walk away with things you can change immediately in your current presentation or just what you needed to create the one that’s in your head. You’ve got to make your pitch by making an impact.
In this training, you’ll start:
Melanie will be doing live pitch training after she teaches you the methodology - so you can learn by volunteering to share yours or from those brave enough to practice in front of the group. It’s up to YOU to rock your pitch!

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
CHIEF STORYTELLER & APPROACHABLE BADASS, MELANIE SPRING
When we share our stories, we connect with each other at a deeper level. When we make friends with our fear, we can step into who we're meant to be.
Working as a brand strategist with businesses of all sizes - from big brands like Five Guys to brand new entrepreneurs - for the past two decades, Melanie Spring noticed that every human had a personal story to tell along with their brand story. Diving into the how-to of writing a branded talk, she saw an even bigger pattern - people wanted to write their talk but focused on what they had to do at their "real job" instead of their bigger impact in the world. She knew had to change this.
As an international keynote speaker, storyteller, and public speaking trainer, Melanie took all of her corporate & personal branding experience and created a safe place for kickass humans to write the talk they needed to write so they could share it with the world through her course, SPEAK With Confidence.
When she's not playing with speakers & corporate folks or rocking the stage, she's living the Colorado life - climbing mountains and chasing sunsets with her husband and pup.
