The core idea we want to communicate is by integrating education and industry, Galvanize puts learning and working side by side. Learn the skills and concepts you need to make an impact on the first day of your new career or improve your skills at your current gig. To do this, we want to use a persona to help tell the story, as well as the attached graphic as a visual representation of the journey. We are turning the graphic into a 3D scene and will be using live action footage as we move through each section. The persona story we have is too wordy and too complicated for screen, so we are looking for someone who can help simplify the story, while still hitting on all the key points. If this is something you think you would enjoy and speaks to your skill set, please let me know. Thanks! <———PROJECT INFORMATION ———> The key points are: - Future of education - integrating education and industry that’s challenging how we approach technology, entrepreneurship, education and talent development. - Education and growth accessible to anyone —immersive and online education to rapidly build skills that make them employable. - For Persona, always felt he/she could/should do more. Wasn’t happy working in finance. - Flyt (internal tool that’s kinda like Linkedin) allows her/him to manage and promote herself/himself to our employer network - Persona gets an offer with xyz company, uses galvanize to help create a development path for new skill developments to work towards joining their dev ops team. Persona: Discovery Phase 1: Miji has an undergrad in Finance. She is unhappily employed at bank in NYC. She is intrigued about learning to code and becoming a software developer. She has heard of Codecademy and begins doing some of their beginner tutorials. She enjoys it and realizes she has aptitude and would like to go further. Knowing that Codecademy is not enough, she learns about Galvanize and goes to the website to start her application. She completes her application and and an enrollment counselor connects to answer question and further assess both her soft and hard skills. She is deemed tentatively accepted into a program to start in 45 days and her profile that was originally created during the application process is now assigned her pre-work on Workbook (the Galvanize LMS).

I had a speech written (to be presented as a webinar) by a freelancer entitled "Think and Grow Rich for Inventors" that did not turn out the way I had hoped. I need it to be revised or re-written from scratch so it tells my PERSONAL STORY and ties it in better with the topic ("Think and Grow Rich for Inventors"). However, my personal story must be written in a HUMBLE fashion. I am doing this webinar to get more business and people do business with people they LIKE. A speech that relates my personal story in a "I am the king of the world" fashion is not good. I was looking for a 60 minute speech/webinar/presentation entitled “Think and Grow Rich for Inventors” modeled after the classic business book by Napoleon Hill. I wanted to take Napoleon HIll's 13 steps to success in "Think and Grow Rich" which is GENERAL and APPLY IT SPECIFICALLY TO INVENTORS . In the process, I wanted to tie in my OWN PERSONAL STORY and use it to motivate inventors and have them see me as someone that UNDERSTANDS THEM as I have been an entrepreneur myself leaving the security of a job at one of the world's top patent law firms to go out on my own and start a law firm assisting inventors with patenting their ideas. To assist you in tying in my personal story....once we are interviewing....I will attach a word document with my "personal story". If you would like a "preview" of my personal story, I have a 2 minute animated video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gDxryz8qME and a 10 minute speech at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IkClY2l_-E Regarding Napoleon Hill's classic business book, "Think and Grow Rich", it is available online at: http://www.actnow.ie/files/ThinkandGrowRich.pdf Preference will be given to speech writers that have read Napoleon Hill's book and are a fan or are at least familiar with the self-help genre along the lines of what Tony Robbins preaches. The presentation will take the 13 steps in Napoleon Hill’s book and fascinate inventors by showing them how these timeless principles apply perfectly to inventors and inventions by using well-known and famous inventions as a guide. As such, I need someone with research skills that can go online and find appropriate examples from GREAT INVENTORS in history and where they apply Napoleon HIll's teachings. This should not be too difficult as Napoleon Hill himself uses examples such as Henry Ford's automobile, the Wright Brother's Airplane, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell. However, Napoleon Hill's book was written in the 1930's so I want to make sure I have recent inventor success stories that are INSPIRING. Stories like those of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are not really inspiring for most people because they are seen as geniuses and nobody gets inspired by a GENIUS achieving greatness. A story about Galelilo figuring out that the earth is not the center of the universe is too LOFTY for a guy that builds a better kitchen appliance. It is when someone that is seen as "being just like us" becomes successful that it is inspiring. Perhaps Mark Zuckerberg's facebook is an example. Yes, Mark Zuckerberg was at HARVARD so he is not exactly "just like us" but his idea "facebook" is easy to understand. He didn't develop technology as intimidating as a completely new operating language (i.e.- Bill Gates) or an entirely new computer (Steve Jobs). People are inspired by AVERAGE JOES becoming successful. I want stories of people like the inventor of SPANKS (slimming pantyhose) such as Sarah Blakely see http://www.forbes.com/sites/clareoconnor/2014/10/21/spanx-inventor-sara-blakely-on-hustling-her-way-to-a-billion-dollar-business/#6e183fef478f Inventors of everyday gadgets that have made it. The more well-known the product the better....but the inventor cannot be seen as a towering genius because that is not relatable and therefore not inspiring. The Wright Brothers are inspiring....they were "bicycle mechanics" that invented an airplane! J. K. Rowling (author of Harry Potter series) is inspiring because she was a secretary when she wrote it. Successful attorney John Grisham writing another best seller doesn't inspire anyone. Before you move forward with the speech, I would like a rough outline specifying the inventor EXAMPLES you intend to use. This will be a "milestone" and 1/2 the total project budget will be paid upon successful completion of this milestone. Although I will present this as an online webinar, you do not have to worry about visual graphics and Powerpoint slides or using fancy-smancy webinar presentation software. Your goal is to create compelling, exciting, and magnetic content for my presentation. Once you provide me with the written work product, I will post a separate job for “webinar experts” to take your content and create appropriate slides, etc. so that it is a good webinar VISUALLY and is optimized for the speech being given online as opposed to in front of an audience.
