Are you nervous about presenting yourself, or your skills, talents and dream projects? Is age, a lack of confidence or shyness getting in your way? This interactive workshop is all about being a highly successful pitcher - whether it's pitching yourself or your project.

What makes a successful pitch? What are the pitfalls to avoid at all cost? How can you master the art of pitching and embrace your own style, personality, brand and age? This workshop will give you the top ten tips for pitching with conviction: how to prepare, read the person you are pitching, pitching as a team, engaging and anticipating every question. If you ever wanted to know the techniques that go into a successful pitch and eliminating blocks in your way, this workshop is for you!
