Truth is, getting attention or "buy-in" is tricky. Whether presenting to clients or prospective clients, competing for a contract or trying to convince colleagues or stake-holders of the merits of a new initiative, your success depends on catching your audience’s interest.
What can you do to ensure your pitches and presentations are dynamic, different, effective and stand out from the pack? How can you cut through to the designated person or audience?
This session aims to pinpoint some of the key areas where you can improve the design, structure and delivery of your pitches, ensuring that your key messages are articulated and delivered effectively.
