Posted by Amity Sims on 2013-12-12

Inside FI gives you exclusive access inside the training sessions of the Founder Institute. To get updates when we release new videos, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our weekly newsletter here.

In this talk by Lima Founder Institute mentor, Glen Hellman explains how to deliver a memorable presentation. Whether it be pitching to investors or showing off your newest business plan, Glen says “you have to be intentional when presenting. It's not just about going through the motions”.

Glen is a Principal at Driven Forward LLC, a firm that supports entrepreneurs and venture investors by providing strategic guidance, interim executive leadership services, and executive coaching. He is also a writer for Tech Cocktail and the author of the blog, Forward Thinking.

Along with having a few simple slides, Glen says “the most important element of a presentation is how well you can keep your audiences attention. If they’re not focused on you, you've failed... dare to be different”.

Glen is a mentor for the Lima Founder Institute, which is currently accepting applications for the Summer 2014 Semester.
Those who submit their applications by Sunday (2013-10-13) will have all application fees waived and are eligible for Founder Institute Fellowships. Click here to learn more and begin your application today.
