This highly interactive session will introduce you to the basics of how to create a powerful pitch and deliver it with credibility. During the session you’ll explore how to research your audience, structure your content, and how to rehearse and present to maximise your impact. We’ll look at how to use storytelling and narrative to differentiate yourself, and to deliver messages which “stick” and drive action.
