THIS COLLECTION IS ALL ABOUT:
The business pitch is a learned art these posts will give you great insights
Business is about ‘The Pitch’ getting it right is critical for success.
Creating a business pitch and presenting it confidently is a critical part of growing a business. There are many reasons why people start pitching. You may need to make a presentation. Maybe it is to the bank manager for an overdraft, or perhaps you are looking for investors. Getting it right is important.
I wrote a whole book – Ready to Soar, with one whole section dedicated to ‘the pitch’. In this range of blog posts I write about the mistakes many startup business founders make.
Personally I have made plenty of mistakes myself and I have seen many pitches too. Through trial and error I continue to build my skill at the ‘perfect business pitch’.
- Remember who your business pitch is for and speak to your audience
- Never wing it… practice practice practice!
- Have check in points to see how you are going, ask questions, make it a dialogue.
