PITCHING FOR SUCCESS – PITCHING IT RIGHT?

Pitching, like it or not, is an integral part of our everyday life.

You may not realise how much of your day is spent pitching: other than the obvious pitching for business scenario, many of the conversations you have with suppliers, your existing customers and your team are about putting across your product or service in the best way you can. It is vital that you get your pitch right, however more often than not we worry about if we are hitting the right note with a pitch.

This seminar will give you the chance to hear from expert speakers on how to deliver the perfect pitch: they’ll share their top tips on pitching and their experiences of winning – and retaining – business through pitching successfully. As well as hearing from our speakers, you’ll get a chance to share your own experiences and network with entrepreneurs and their supporters.
