Have you ever gone into a meeting ready to share your great idea — only to have it brutally shot down?
A couple weeks ago, I wrote an article for the Harvard Business Review about honing your presentation skills.
During my time as the head of innovation at Disney, I heard more pitches than I could count. Every day, a handful of new ideas were shared by starry-eyed creatives. Some were celebrated, while others were quickly tossed to the side. In general, few made it past the initial brainstorming meeting.
