Lunch Workshop: Art of the Pitch
When someone asks you “what do you do”, do you have a ready, concise response at hand? Are you prepared at a moments notice to explain your idea/product/service in a way that moves people to take action?
Entrepreneurs at all stages have to constantly sell, not just their business but also themselves. This selling is commonly referred to as “pitching”, but do you know exactly what pitching is? And what if I told you that you don’t need just one pitch, you need several!
In this one-hour mini workshop you will learn what pitching is, the different types of pitches, the elements of these different pitches and why pitching is fundamental to your success. You will also have the opportunity to create and deliver a one-sentence pitch about your business.
Join us for a fun and productive lunch hour and up your game!
**RSVP so we can get your lunch**
Lunches are free for members and paid for non-members.
