You know that time you delivered a presentation and froze on stage, or you crumbled at the thought of pitching an idea on Zoom. What about when you forgot your content and spent the whole session reading your slides. Or maybe you were so nervous you nailed a bottle of wine at lunch and slurred your way through the deck you prepared last minute? If any of these sound familiar, you need to join us for Pitch Perfect .

What will you get from this workshop?

Delivering pitches, presentations and public speaking is part and parcel of being successful in selling services. Get used to the idea and get good at it so you don’t have to worry. That’s what Pitch Perfect is all about.

In two half-day workshops delivered online we’ll develop your communications skills, building your confidence at delivering pitches and public speaking in any situation. Whether you are fairly accomplished, or introverted and inexperienced, this course will help you to gain true speaking confidence by developing your natural abilities.

You will draw on your trainer’s background in stand-up comedy to help you engage and entertain your audiences like never before.

By completing these two half-day training courses you will be able to:

  • make a great first impression
  • show confidence and control your nerves
  • write rich, concise material with a story
  • engage an audience and keep their attention
  • communicate authentically
  • use visuals effectively
  • adapt to the unexpected

Format:

The workshops will be held online using Zoom. They will be in interactive throughout and you will be gently pushed out of your comfort zone to learn enhanced speaking techniques through direct experience.

You will need to prepare and bring with you a 4-minute presentation on any subject you like. This can be in simple note format or with visuals if you wish. You will deliver this twice, building and iterating it throughout the workshop into a thing of utter power: impactful, persuasive and easy to deliver.
