In today’s world where ‘content is king,’ everyone agrees that pitching is one of the hardest, and yet most necessary skills to master. Pitching is a skill you have to conquer to successfully launch your ideas, your business and your passion.
This two evening workshop (on September 19 and 23 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.) – one evening to learn, the other to practice – is built from my own painful and positive experiences and from listening to countless pitches all over the world.
If you’ve pitched and felt the pain, feel better right now — you are not alone!
I’ve spent over 20 years in the media and entertainment business pitching and listening to other people pitch. In my experience, a great pitch means the difference between building a strong relationship with a decision-maker or spending hours figuring out what went wrong and wanting the ground to swallow you up.
In this workshop, I’ll lay out the key elements of a successful pitch.
I’ll open the vault of my wealth of experience and share the secrets of the brightest and most successful entrepreneurs. I’ll share their strategies for pitching success as well as the common pitfalls and how to avoid them.
In the first evening you’ll learn how to:
- research your audience, person or business you’re pitching
- create a log line that tells your compelling story in a single sentence
- understand the crucial storytelling components that will make your offering so irresistible it will open hearts and contracts/wallets
- create the structure of a successful pitch
On the second evening, you’ll practice your pitch and receive expert feedback on its strengths and weaknesses.
