This workshop, sponsored by the United Nations Institute of Training and Research (UNITAR) and in corporation with the NYU Women's Initiative (alumni), builds on Jim Arnoff's experience as an agent in the entertainment industry where he pitches series to the television networks, his training as a career coach and his leading pitching workshops in the entertainment industry/women in finance/NYU.
The goal of the Women's Initiative is to engage NYU's more than 200,000 alumnae in the intellectual, cultural, and educational life of the University. Programs and events featuring outstanding NYU faculty and alumnae provide graduates opportunities to return to the University, meet prominent leaders and scholars, and continue lifelong learning. The mission statement of the NYU Women’s Initiative is to empower women through educational, cultural or networking events.
To enable participants to:
- learn the skills of pitching powerfully
- eliminate the blocks to pitching with results
- gain an awareness to speak with more effective language
- embrace their natural way of communicating
- create an action plan to pitch in the most effective way.
The structure is highly interactive with the participants involved from the very moment the training begins to the very end.
