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, you will compete in December 2019 (tentative date: December 11, 2019) for one of the three prizes listed above.
If you have any questions about this or any other Supplier Diversity event, please do not hesitate to contact Rob Finkelstein at Rob@nglccNY.org.
Note: Pitch eligibility requires that you are a Certified LGBT Business Enterprise (LGBTBE) and a good standing member of nglccNY, NJ LGBT Chamber, or Connecticut Gay & Lesbian Chamber. If your company is selected to pitch, appropriate representation on the date of the event is required.
