About Speaker Oren Klaff…
Oren Klaff is the Director of Capital Markets at investment bank Intersection Capital, where he manages its capital raising platform (retail and wholesale distribution), business and product development. Oren co-developed and oversees Intersection Capital’s flagship product, VelocityTM. Over the course of his career, he has helped companies raise more than a billion dollars, and, of interest to those of us in this audience, he spends his days in high stakes, high-pressure situations. Oren has extensively studied how humans respond to each other in high-stakes business situations, and he recently published this work in the now best-selling book, Pitch Anything.
Oren seeks to understand the different motivations and economic responses of the human mind, and how to use this information in everyday business situations. With a fun, intense, and highly specific approach to presenting, persuading, and pitching, Oren Klaff will walk through the strategies that work today to raise significant amounts of investment capital. Using a real world example, you will begin to understand the difference between sales, negotiation and deal making, and walk away with improved pitching skills. 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. Each of Oren’s tactics can get you closer to closing a deal.
