PechaKucha Presentation

Life is a Pitch...

PRESENTED ON JAN 27, 2016
IN JOHANNESBURG @ VOL 12

“One of the best salespeople I know is a guy called Brandon. He runs a foundation called life changes in Cape Town. Every day he is selling. He takes gangsters off the street and sells them clean living. Women who have been sex trafficked since age 10, he sells them celibacy.”

In "Life is a Pitch…" from PechaKucha Night Johannesburg Vol. 12, Shelley Walters shares her personal insight on life and how our lives are, essentially, a selling process. By improving how we sell ourselves and how we persuade the people around us, we can improve the general well-being of ourselves and others.

Een Elevate-pitch

BY HAROLD SCHONEWILLE
@ VOL 1 ON FEB 04, 2015

De muziek is nooit ver weg bij Harold Schonewille. Met de paplepel kreeg hij het pianospel ingegoten en staat hij het liefst bekend als componist, arrangeur en dirigent. Hij waakt er dan ook voor dat het werk als directeur van Elevate, creative artsschool gevestigd in gebouw de Troubadour hem niet te veel in beslag neemt. Zonder muziek verschraalt het leven. Het afgelopen jaar kwam het avontuur met Elevate in een stroomversnelling. Een Elevate pitch waard
