      How the idea emerged
      From 2013 to the end of 2018, I had the opportunity to speak at various venues and become a mentor for a significant number of international projects. And many entrepreneurs have the same task: to be able to present well.
      And it is not the matter of how to properly arrange slides in your pitch. It is about your self-consciousness as a speaker, your faith in the project / idea.
      When in 2016 at the WebSummit pitch competition, the first question from the jury was: Kate, could you share with us your secret? Why your passion is so contagious? - I knew that I was already pitching to the audience about Amolingua for the 1000th time I had not lost my passion. I want to teach you how to do this. How to convey your ideas in public and win.
      In 2016-2018 in Amolingua we gave students specific tasks for presentations, speeches, interviews and pitches. And finally an idea emerged. I created this exclusive course aimed at training you pitch to win at an accelerated pace.

      Who is this course for?
      Elon Mask
      You are an active serial entrepreneur, constantly developing your projects, but you have bad luck in communication with your foreign partners, it does not work, you are constantly worried about your foreign language skills. You are certainly talented, but over and over again you fall through the finals in prestigious international competitions or in cohorts for accelerators like YCombinator due to a lack of understanding of the judges' questions or the inability to formulate your answer in English.
      We will help to work out the presentation, performance and questions after the presentation.
      Sam Altman
      Head of an accelerator or a venture fund
      You are developing your project, helping young entrepreneurs realise their ideas in reality. You feel that you can achieve more, enter international partnerships and represent your projects abroad, but only via an interpreter. You can speak English on a daily basis, but you are terribly nervous while presenting your project to foreign colleagues.
      We will help you cope with anxiety, make out the structure of your presentation with the storytelling technique, smooth phonetics and understand how to use non-verbal communication with the audience.
      Steve Wozniak
      Inventor or scientist
      You are a very talented IT specialist, engineer, scientist, who is ready to spend hours creating new parts for projects. And you are sent to contests, you seek recognition with your work, but it's terribly uncomfortable to talk about your projects and ideas - even shameful - you worry about your mistakes in speech, accent, your hands get sweaty, and you mumble something under your nose shifting from one foot to the other.
      We will help you get rid of the fear of mistakes, work on your voice for presentations, find your charisma and prepare for not only technical questions.
      Peter Diamandis
      Open or Corporate Innovation consultant
      You are the head of a successful foundation or company, and a concurrently sought-after innovation consultant. You are invited to conferences related to innovation. You advise the CEO of famous companies. But for the next step, keynote speech at large international conferences such as SingularityU Summit, there is still not enough training in speeches in English, although your business English is enough for your daily work.
      We will help you prepare a presentation using your strengths. You will learn about the intricacies of working with an international audience, how to use humour, metaphors and social examples to brighten your speech.
      Can I come with my own presentation/pitch?
      Yes you can. If you have a conference, a final of the competition or negotiations, come to us with your challenge.

      If you have several projects, then we will train on only one. And you can then apply this knowledge to other projects.

      And if now there is no project, but I want to upgrade my skills? You can too! We will provide you with a project for a presentation from your area.

      By the way, if you want to learn how to present yourself for job interviews or stories about yourself, but are terribly shy, then this is also a good fit for our programme!

      The most important thing is to upgrade your skills.
