Imagine my delight when I bumped into Sam Horn at SXSW. She’s a presentation coach, pitch consultant, intrigue expert who also works with women participating inSpringboard Enterprises , an accelerator program for women-led technology, media, and life sciences businesses. I was even more delighted when she told me about her new book, Got Your Attention?: How to Create Intrigue and Connect with Anyone.
