Just in time for the launch of the nglccNY Biz Pitch sponsored by EY, come hone your pitch skills!
Everyone can benefit from brushing up on their pitching skills, whether you are going after a big potential customer, an investor, or an important constituent. At those moments, your ability to stand in front of people, inspire confidence, and deliver a compelling message will make all the difference. But, poor communication holds many companies back?they miss critical opportunities, and great ideas go unnoticed. Ultimately, it can be the difference between success and failure.
- Have you ever struggled with pitching your business? If so, this workshop is for you.
- Have you pitched "perfectly" but still not won the business? If so, this workshop is for you.
But there's a solution. Great communication is a skill that virtually any one can learn.
In this compelling workshop, keynote speaker and executive coach Gerry Valentine will unlock the secrets of great communication, how to stand in front of any audience and deliver your message when it counts.
- You will learn:
- How to craft a compelling message.
- The fundamentals of great public speaking.
- How to look confident and composed at all times.
- The small details that make a big difference when stakes are high.
- How to deliver presentations that get results.
