Pitch Clinic

The pressure is on: the big pitch is looming on the horizon and you know you have to impress. Are you feeling confident?

Regardless of your experience in pitching to clients or your management team, if you don’t come across as being confident and professional, you’re unlikely to succeed.

Pitching an idea or product is all about being able to argue, demonstrate and persuade effectively.

Even if you practice until you’re word perfect, you must still be able to employ the relevant interpersonal skills to get your message across effectively face-to-face.

Learning goals

This course concentrates on two key areas:

  • Communication skills
  • Presentation skills

Whether you’re a seasoned ‘pitcher’ or someone who’s looking to build their confidence ready to tackle their first pitch, this business presentation training course will equip you with the tools you need.

Usually 1:1, we can also apply this course to entire teams that are involved in a pitch.

This course includes access to Working Voices Digital.

Purpose

To help participants make a confident, professional and successful pitch whatever their pitching experience, whatever their background.

Course Overview

By the end of this training, you’ll have honed your technique and have the interpersonal-skills essential to delivering a winning pitch

Whether you pitch well or badly you can be sure of one thing – the result goes straight to the bottom line. We all have to pitch. We know about the thing, idea or person we have to sell (the person often being ourselves, of course); we’ve prepared our patter and know it by heart. Where we fall down is in the way we deliver the message.

The call for this sort of training is growing – for individuals and for teams. Increasingly the experts and technicians do the pitching because they’re the people who tend to know the subject inside out. At the same time, they’re the people who tend to be less familiar with pitching technique. Either way, we can help. We’ll show you what you need to know to give your pitch the very best chance of success.
