In pitching, in presenting everything begins with "Why?". There is no greater creative question than "Why?". So we start here too.  And by exploring first what's  motivating you right now, using this truth you will find your real and best professional, presentation voice faster. You will also create a solid foundation to build any presentation or pitch on. Any lurking, naturally occurring nerves or fears will be faced and managed safely.

  1. Fresh or renewed confidence about your presentation and pitch skills
  2. Practical experience by doing short presentations, with feedback
  3. A simple but extraordinarily powerful tool to: create; structure; and refine any pitch or presentation you will ever do

Vibe: intense; fun; works right out of the box, practical learning that's transformative now. Dives deep into beliefs and theories about communication with materials and web links to grow your knowledge about pitching after the workshop at your own pace and learning style.
