I'll be speaking at the International Media Convention in Berlin next week, organised by MEDIENWOCHE@IFA
I have been going to the Edinburgh TV Festival for many years and it is always a pleasure to meet old friends in the TV business. Anyone who is anyone in British TV is there and there are always very interesting and well produced sessions featuring the biggest names in International Television.
In August, I'll be delivering the keynote address for The Danish TV Festival, a closed industry event, dedicated to content, and gathering all Danish producers and broadcasters. The festival has been running since 1999 and was created as a "sister-festival" to the Edinburgh TV Festival and attracts around 700 media professionals. I'm also priviledged to have been asked to deliver some training for them on the second day.
I have been doing a lot of PR recently for The Pocket Pitching Bible and I am glad to say that it has been working rather well as the book is flying off Amazon’s virtual shelves.
I visited Israel recently to deliver a keynote for the Globes Marketing, Advertising, Digital and Music Conference.
The conference brings together people of worldwide importance in the industry to hear the latest developments in global telecommunications, media, advertising and the Internet. Such developments are of particular relevance for Israel, a country known as an early adopter of advanced technologies and a test bed for the immense changes underway in these fields.
Hot on the heels of his first Amazon number one ranking book, The Pitching Bible, The Pitch Doctor aka Paul Boross has released a unique companion guide.
Pitching is becoming more and more well known and widely accepted as a vital way of securing new business, and even in ensuring success in job interviews. TV series such as The Apprentice and Dragon’s Den have made pitching part of our everyday language, and everyone from graduates to seasoned entrepreneurs can benefit from improving their skills and winning more pitches.
Lorna Sixsmith has interviewed me recently for the Tweak Your Biz.com blog, about my book and about my views and experiences of pitching as it relates to getting investment for your business. Here's the interview for you...
Cormac Moore who runs Headcases in Ireland asked me to write an article for his website on the subject of 'standing out from the crowd', so I thought you might like to read it here too...
In my work as The Pitch Doctor, one of the most common questions that comes up is “How do I make myself memorable?”
Standing out from the crowd is actually one of the easiest things to do. Standing out for the right reasons is one of the most difficult.
