Workshop: The Essential First Thirty by Matt McKinley

Two sessions workshop:

Now that you have produced all this wonderful artwork, what do you want to do with it? In order to get the results you expect, what are your strategies for changing goals into reality?

"The Essential First 30" addresses the obstacles to your success by providing you with strategies and tools necessary to identify and take advantage of quality opportunities for promoting yourself. Discussed and practiced will be your approach, your presentation and your close, all focused on your goals.

Monday, November 5th, 6:30-8:00 PM

Part One of "The Essential First 30" covers developing your 30 second or less presentation about who you are, what you do and why your listeners would want to know more about you. You will be given strategies for developing an effective, concise presentation that can be applied to any interaction and that minimizes the time needed to qualify leads. Also addressed during this first session is writing an effective single page artist statement.

Monday, November 12th, 6:30-8:00 PM

Part Two of "The Essential First 30" is the practical application of Part One. Each participant will be given the opportunity to present their 30 second presentation followed by peer and instructor review. Through group activity, the effectiveness of your artist statement will also be evaluated.
