ABOUT nglccNY Biz Pitch: nglccNY Biz Pitch is similar in format to Certified Superstar. You will give a ten-minute presentation which should focus on a service and value proposition. Following your presentation, you will receive ten minutes of constructive feedback on style, content, presentation skills and communication. Although you will not be bidding on any specific job, you should treat this opportunity as if it were an actual sales pitch. You will walk away with helpful advice from Corporate Partner representatives and gain additional experience in pitching your businesses. If EY selects you as the winner on January 22, 2019, you will compete in December 2019 (tentative date: December 11, 2019) for one of the three prizes listed above.
