As an entrepreneur or small business owner, how often do you find yourself uncertain about how to present information about your company during formal and informal conversations? How often could your description have been clearer, and led to better outcomes? This training will help you perfect your pitch, and adapt it to the many situations you may experience. The next time an opportunity arises, you’ll be ready! Come ready to prepare and share your own pitch, in this interactive training. This training will address verbal pitches (e.g. elevator pitch and speed dating pitch) and formal presentation pitches (e.g. for technology commercialization forums or investor presentations). It will also help you understand and plan for the wide range of outcomes you might be seeking such as raising money, finding advisors, identifying customers, or other resources that the person in the elevator might be able to provide.
