Twitter for Research, Hitting Your Target: Northeastern’s Pitch Training
We live in an age of information overload. Texts, Tweets, Facebook posts, Snaps, pics, constant notifications ….
Think about it: how often do you get impatient and feel your irritation level creep up when someone is fumbling and stumbling through an explanation or request? In these Twitter times, concision matters. Wandering explanations, meandering requests — leftovers from a past age.
Northeastern’s pitch training event, Hitting Your Target, is like Twitter for research.* Facilitated by pitchmaster Stuart Paap of PitchDNA, Hitting Your Target teaches you how to articulate the value of your research in a manner that is relevant, value laden, and concise.
Through Hitting Your Target, you gain skill in understanding your audience and identifying the value of your research. Plus, you learn how to convey this value quickly — within the attention span of modern life.
Crafting a poignant value propositions is a transferable skill, and this is chance to learn from one of the best.
