ROCK YOUR PITCH - 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). 

Melanie Spring 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 presentation, you’ll start: 

• finding out how the numbers can tell a story 
• getting tips on how to tell the story without boring people 
• finding ways to get your audience to feel something
• seeing how the story AND the numbers make the impact 

It’s up to YOU to rock your pitch! 

Come celebrate with us for this is the day that brings together leaders from across the meetings and events industry to showcase the real impact that business meetings, conferences, conventions, incentive travel, trade shows and exhibitions have on people, business and communities.

Speaker Bio:

Melanie Spring is one of those people who can walk into a room and light it up. She’ll make you want to be her best friend, yet when she gets to know enough of your story, she’ll find the perfect way to push you outside of your box. Her brand is Approachable Badass and it fits her perfectly. She even got out of her own box when she went on a 7,000-mile road trip collecting stories on how companies lived their brand. The Live Your Brand Tour was published in Entrepreneur Magazine, where she earned her title as a veteran brand
strategist.

With entrepreneurship in her blood, she ran Sisarina for 8 years building websites and brands only to rebrand as herself through Branded Confidence by Melanie Spring. Speaking and facilitating workshops all over the world, she becomes a part of your team as she builds your brand from the inside out - with humans first. But you have to be a kickass human in order to work with her. (She even has a club for that - www.kickasshumansclub.com)
