Pitch Me Perfect: One day pitching workshop

Wednesday 8 April 2015, 10:00 am6:00 pm

This workshop is for writers, directors, producers, art directors, entrepreneurs, and anyone with a great idea that needs support.

SO, HOW GOOD IS YOUR PITCH?

Do you walk into a pitching session with a smile and come out with an offer to take things further, or do you go in petrified and leave dissatisfied?

THE GOOD NEWS

The skills required for PITCHING can be learned easily. Better still, they can be adapted to the specifics of your project, the circumstances you’re pitching in and your own personality.

The PITCH ME PERFECT WORKSHOPS will address all of the above. We’ll look at how to identify the key ingredient of a project and how to make it exciting to others; how to prepare well; how to deliver a PERFECT PITCH in different circumstances and how to follow up on it, later. We’ll talk about nervousness vs. authenticity and making a connection. We’ll learn what is more powerful than Power Point.

We’ll also practice! All participants get to pitch and receive personal feedback on the day, as well as an opportunity for a one-on-one pitch review, via Skype, in the days after the workshop.
