The myth that good work sells itself is just that — a myth. Good solutions aren’t always obvious at first glance. Good ideas, even the best ideas, need to be sold. Whether you’re a designer, a developer, a writer, or a consultant — you’ll need to persuade your boss or client of the idea’s worth. Creating a compelling story from a list of recommendations is an often overlooked design skill.
Making your case makes it more likely your work will launch on time (or at all) and that it represents your true intentions. It’s smart business.
During this workshop, we’ll cover effective presentation techniques including: how to take charge of a room, how to turn your research and data into a good story, how to map your work to the objectives of your business or client, how to ask for the right kind of feedback, and more importantly, how to avoid getting feedback you don’t really need!
Who this workshop is for
You. No, seriously—you. Whether you’re a designer, a developer, an engineer, a content strategist, or whatever funny name you’ve come up for yourself this week, your job includes having to convince someone of something. This is true whether you’re working in an agency, a studio, inside an organization, or for yourself. Everyone has clients, even if you call them “boss”.
We can do this workshop as part of a conference, or in-house at your organization.
What past participants say:
“I loved how Mike brought the materials to life with examples, humor, and context.”
“The content was incredibly useful. I’ve mostly worked as a lone wolf in a sea of engineers and have been making it up as I go. Having some solid, easy to remember, principles for not messing up have already carried me through the last week of a pretty challenging project.”
“It was a revelation.”
“I don’t know how to choose just one favorite part.”
