Linda Plano
We worked together  •  Pitch coach, Plano and Simple: "Life's a pitch. Make yours amazing!" Broad experience in startups, corp, gov't, tech xfr, Stanford & MIT.
Linda's simple recipe for pitching to investors, "Decrease fear, increase greed," has been a wonderful bit of wisdom that I have passed on t ... o many people as they prepare. It is memorable for its humor as well as its brevity. She gives a great talk, highly energetic with self-deprecating humor that connects well to the audience. She is someone you quickly know you can trust. She is also very generous with her time and is both kind and critical, which is not always the case with experts.
