Today I’m joined by Peter Desberg and Jeffrey Davis. Peter and Jeffrey are Hollywood insiders. Peter is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in the area of stage fright and performance anxiety. Jeffrey is a successful writer/producer in Hollywood and a Professor of Film and TV Writing at Loyola Marymount University. They are the authors of a new book called Pitch Like Hollywood: What You Can Learn from the High-Stakes Film Industry. This book helps leaders become more persuasive in their presentations by incorporating elements of a classic Hollywood pitch: driving emotion, piquing curiosity, and ultimately winning over their audience. Persuasion and influence are big parts of leadership so I’m excited to have them on the show to talk about it.
