Crafting a Keynote & Drinking Whiskey with Baratunde

, Founder at Cultivated Wit

Students in NYC can attend in person at the Skillshare offices. They will be able to enjoy delicious whiskey in person. Students elsewhere will be able to join via streaming video (information to be sent after signing up). They will have to supply their own whiskey. Both audiences will be able to interact with Baratunde because we live in the modern era.

Baratunde Thurston is giving the opening keynote at SXSW Interactive and in this class, he'll share the beta version with you.

This class will expose the process of crafting a keynote from idea to delivery. Using Baratunde's talk as a case study in progress, we'll see how cumulative revisions help turn your presentation from ok to amazing. He'll also be actively seeking class feedback as this presentation has never been given before! Here's your chance to shape SXSW.

We'll also be live streaming this class for everyone not able to attend in NYC. You'll be able to ask questions through text and video. Sign up for the class and we'll send you the password to get in. Here's the link to the chat:

In addition to the mind-blowing content of this class and ample amounts of whiskey, students can use the $5 they spend on this class as a credit towards Baratunde's new book, How To Be Black shipped to their address of choice when it's released on January 31.
