Power Pitch: Masterclass on Storytelling for entrepreneurs and other changemakers

[Add image here]

In 2008, Edgeryders community members Augusto Pirovano and Matteo Uguzzoni started working on []. Critical City won every competition there was to win. They now help others to do the same.

Edgeryders are in the business of developing and deploying new initiatives at the edge of context. Many of which come at the problem from a completely new perspective.  We need to provide opportunities for personal development to ourselves. So we are commissioning Augusto and Matteo to run a 2-day storytelling Masterclass and project clinic.

  • We are already attracting attention towards edgeryders' individual and collective projects this is generating new opportunities for all. Better storytelling = more engagement, investment & support in members' work.
  • Some of us are already deriving a small income from public speaking. So if we are great speakers we get more invitations and more money. Also it's basically client-funded marketing for your initiative.

The Power Pitch weekend is a unique opportunity to rapidly develop your storytelling skills, and take your project to the next level. It takes place on May 26-27, in Brussels at the Reef.


And a third reason to choose Augusto/Matteo (“Dyson sphere: we try to keep the money in the community”)

Why should people put money into the workshop?

Critical City won every competition there was to win. They are selling presentation preparation to big corpses.

Also. Social entrepreneurs. I know them since 2008. Good people. Part of the community. Not your average biz guru bullshitter
