Distinguished Innovator Speaker Series: Perfect Pitch
May 26, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Perfect Pitch – Being pitchy is very difficult. It’s easy to ramble, be loquacious and get enamored with yourself, your product, and your technology, that you forget that listeners, especially investors, don’t have the patience or time to struggle through your pitch. Think about the networking events you attend. How much time do you get to garner people’s attention? Not much. If you can strike a chord though, the listener will ask for more. For those readers in the corporate world, it is not much different. Making a pitch to the Board, or your own boss, requires you to get to the point and capture their interest once the small talk and pleasantries. On April 28th we’ll talk about the beauty of the elevator pitch and how to construct one. These ideas can help the budding entrepreneur who is approaching an investor or an executive making a presentation to other executives, clients, or business partners.
