About the Book:

When it comes to delivering a pitch, Oren Klaff has unparalleled credentials. Over the past 13 years, he has used his one-of-a- kind method to raise more than $400 million—and now, for the fi rst time, he describes his formula to help you deliver a winning pitch in any business situation.

Whether you’re selling ideas to investors, pitching a client for new business, or even negotiating for a higher salary, Pitch Anything will transform the way you position your ideas.

According to Klaff, creating and presenting a great pitch isn’t an art—it’s a simple science. Applying the latest findings in the field of neuroeconomics, while sharing eye-opening stories of his method in action, Klaff describes how the brain makes decisions and responds to pitches. With this information, you’ll remain in complete control of every stage of the pitch process.

Pitch Anything introduces the exclusive STRONG method of pitching, which can be put to use immediately:

Setting the Frame
Telling the Story
Revealing the Intrigue
Offering the Prize
Nailing the Hookpoint
Getting a Decision

One truly great pitch can improve your career, make you a lot of money—and even change your life. Success is dependent on the method you use, not how hard you try. “Better method, more money,” Klaff says. “Much better method, much more money.” Klaff is the best in the business because his method is much better than anyone else’s. And now it’s yours.

Apply the tactics and strategies outlined in Pitch Anything to engage and persuade your audience—and you’ll have more funding and support than you ever thought possible.

Using the S.T.R.O.N.G. Method, you will discover that PITCH ANYTHING gives you a common vocabulary in identifying hurdles that might keep you from getting your next deal. You will learn how to read subtle (but obvious) shifts in power during meetings; how to own the room by creating local star-power and capture the alpha position; you will learn when to press forward and when to pause. Once you realize you have control over the agenda and the flow, you’ll always stay composed, get the high-status position, own the frame, and get to the hook point. Then, closing is easy.

Pitch Anything

PITCH ANYTHING is a fast-paced narrative packed with crystal clear examples illustrating the unique S.T.R.O.N.G. Method, which takes advantage of how the brain really works by Setting the Frame; Telling the Story; Revealing the Intrigue; Offering the Prize; Nailing the Hookpoint; and Getting a Decision. These are methods to get frame control, a way of making your perspective the dominant one in social encounters. Each of these tactics can get you closer to closing a deal. Used together, they give you complete control over the pitch process.

IF YOU’RE THE FRONT MAN, THE PERSON WHO HAS TO PITCH THE DEAL OR SELL SOMETHING, THEN TODAY YOU HAVE TO RISE TO A NEW LEVEL. Your marketplace is more crowded than ever. Socially,with people’s attention splintered over half dozen devices, and the speed of life increasing, the attention of your target is growing more and more scarce. If you can’t get and keep your target’s attention, then it doesn’t matter how well you present the information about your product or deal. And getting attention isn’t a technical or business skill; it’s become social skill.
