Startup Workshop: Delivering A Winning Pitch
Time & Location
About The Event
Much of the success you have in life, both personal and professional, will depend on how well you “pitch” yourself, or more simply how well you “sell” yourself. A pitch should tell the story of you and/or your business. A bad pitch can cost you more than just a second meeting.
Raising capital from investors can be challenging and time-consuming. Therefore, it is always crucial that you convey in a manner that shows your business as a compelling and interesting story.
Making successful pitch begins long before the presentation itself. It requires strategic direction, careful preparation and meticulous rehearsal with the right people in order to ensure that your business will stand out from the crowd. It is always important to have a compelling and dynamic pitch so come along to develop a skill which can open doors to funding, new customers and much more.
At the end of the workshop, learners should be able to:
- Identify what the audience are looking for;
- Construct a compelling and interesting pitch to present to the audience;
- Use body language and voice variation to enhance the storyline;
- Create an effective “call-to-action” to entice the investors.
