In this session we’ll develop a pitch to engage someone with your work. Then, when that moment arrives where you have an opportunity, you will be able to do yourself justice and really connect with potential partners and have a constructive conversation.
The course consists of four sessions of 90 minutes. The sessions begin with conceptual discussions and get more practical through the day – by Module 4 you are on your feet doing multiple pitches and getting detailed, personalized feedback.
Includes pre-work/homework to get the brain working before the session. Also, Module one can be delivered in advance via Zoom if preferred.
