Workshop: Pitching your Business

Pitching your business can be one of life’s great challenges. Reputations and brand success are at stake, audiences can be challenging, and preparation time is often limited.

And yet there are few other skills that can have a bigger impact on a startup’s success. It can make a difference when raising funding, developing partnerships, hiring amazing employees, and selling your product, service or company.

Pitching in a clear, relevant, and meaningful way for different audiences requires skill and insight. These skills can be learned and results can be transformational. Some of the world’s biggest brands rely on them.

 By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Know how to align their three critical brands – you, your tech, and your brand
  • Be able to define and build their personal brand
  • Learn ways to pitch their tech, service, or product to a range of relevant audiences
  • Know how to build a company brand that adds to the bottom line
  • Develop a convincing and irresistible elevator pitch

This workshop is aimed at anyone (and therefore everyone) who has to pitch to key stakeholders. It will be fun, highly interactive, and challenging, so come prepared with a pitch in mind that you can work on.
