Do you have a great idea? Do you have what it takes to “sell” that idea and bring it to fruition?
To bring a bold idea to fruition, a small business owner must convince several key stakeholders that the idea is worthwhile and get their buy-in. This non-credit class will help you define who your audiences are and why they matter. Throughout the course, we will develop proposals for each of these constituencies, present these ideas, and analyze the effectiveness of each presentation to convince the audience to buy into the idea. By the end of the course, you will be able to craft an effective proposal, present it well to a variety of audiences, and achieve your goal with less time and effort.
