TRU BOOT CAMP: PITCHING & PRESENTATION SKILLS FOR WRITERS & PRODUCERS

Genre: Other
Theater Resources Unlimited

In a challenging economy, people still need to push forward with their ideas and projects and pave the way for future success. One of the skills that gives many an advantage in a competitive market is the ability to pinpoint what is true and important about their ideas, and to present them clearly and convincingly; i.e., they know how to pitch. In an effort to bring these crucial business skills to the arts, Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) presents the second TRU Boot Camp: PITCHING & PRESENTATION SKILLS FOR WRITERS & PRODUCERS with Jane Petrov and Roy Havrilack of SkyTown Entertainment on Saturday, October 10 from 11am – 6pm at The Players Theatre Mainstage, 115 MacDougal Street (below W. 3rd Street), NYC. Admission is $175 for the full day, $100 for a half-day session ($150/$85 for early registration before 10/3).

Petrov and Havrilack will be training theater professionals with the same methods they use for top law firms and Wall Street financial clients. Their first theater workshop was so successful that TRU is bringing it back by popular demand. “We decided to retool it slightly, and expand it,” said instructor Jane Petrov. “It's actually longer than the last workshop because we'll be spending the entire first half of the day helping participants to hone the actual content of their pitches. The afternoon session will focus more on pitching techniques like eye contact, gesturing and using notes effectively. And we will be videotaping participants so they can see themselves and make adjustments that will help them be more powerful in their presentations.”

Admission is $175 for the full day, $100 for a half-day session ($150/$85 for early registration before 10/3. $25 off for members of TRU). Workshop limited to 20 participants.

Payment by check may be mailed to Theater Resources Unlimited, 309 W. 104th Street 1D, NYC NY 10025. On-line payment by Paypal or by credit card is available at www.truonline.org/store2.html.
