After all, there’s only so many times you want to be told you “came a close second”. Read on to find out how you too could win more pitches.

What will you get from this course?

This interactive course will give you the skills you need to win at pitching. The course builds throughout the day with preparation work to be completed in groups as you work towards delivering a short pitch at the end of the workshop.
