Pitch Your Business Masterclass
Tue, March 21, 2017, 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM GMT
Have you ever walked out of a pitch thinking: “That could have gone so much better”? If you want to pitch better, this masterclass is for you.
Pitch Your Business is a 1-day hands-on workshop which has been specifically designed for startups and entrepreneurs who need to pitch to customers and investors.
We have priced the masterclass at the very competitive rate to reflect that. And we have limited the number of participants to a maximum of 10 to provide the maximum amount of individual attention, personalised feedback and time to practice for each and every individual.
One of the key benefits of the workshop is that you will be working on your important pitch in a very practical way. We’ve developed a simple formula that enables you to work on the script and structure of your pitch, but also practice it during the workshop.
This is a step-by-step method, covering the following:
- How the brain works and how people process your pitch
- Assess your audience
- What is your key message
- What is so distinctive about it
- Frame your pitch with powerful narratives
- What to leave / what to include
- Make a strong opening
- Close effectively
- Handle questions strategically
- Manage objections / interruptions
- Practice your pitch: leverage your confidence & clarity
- Effective slide creation for the pitch deck
By the end of the masterclass, you will have crafted your story, developed some pitch lines and gained in confidence and clarity. You will also have learnt a method to help you through future pitches.
Come ready with an idea to pitch – be it a product, a service, an app, your business.
Scratching out your ideas with a pen and paper is often best. So you will be working directly from a workbook. All you need is to bring a pen. Bringing a laptop is not a prerequisite but if you are working from an existing pitch and want to refer to your laptop or tablet, feel free to do so.
To allow me to customise the masterclass as much as I can, once you’ve registered, I will email you a few questions - such as are you looking to master your pitch to investors, customers or both.
