About the Event

No level of research, subject matter competence or financial analysis can make up for a very poor pitch. Just like a flight, a proper pitch needs an effective take-off and landing along with the inclusion of critical elements of a pitch that are routinely missed.

In this workshop we will discuss how to develop an effective pitch along with analyzing the critical elements that must be effectively communicated to your audience.
