Improv Is Key To Any Pitch

Improv Is Key To Any Pitch

Think of it this way, in life is anything scripted and the answer to this would be a big fat no. Last week we had Patrick Pennefather from the Centre for Digital Media pay us a visit giving us tips on how to be more confident in our storytelling and pitches.

Would I Sell Myself Out to a Brand to Make Money

Would I Sell Myself Out to a Brand to Make Money

My instructor asked us a very interesting question which is would I become a sell out just to earn money. Well here is the thing, what company is it and would I really like their stuff?

This time around I am doing yet on another peer review for a fellow student in class.

Peer Review for Olivia Hadden

Peer Review for Olivia Hadden

Today I had the pleasure of conducting a peer review on Ms. Olivia Hadden’s blog known as “Latte Talk with Liv.” After going through the blog, it had a clear indication that her brand is revolving around coffee but more specifically coffee shops around Vancouver. At first, when I browsed the blog, I thought there wasn’t anything posted on the blog due to the way it is managed. In a recent class lecture where we had special guest, TJ Dawe…
