The Pitch is Dead: Long Live the Pitch

Wednesday, November 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am • Organized By Enterprise University
Online Event


From “Shark Tank” to pitch competitions, we’re all tired of hearing about the importance of the elevator pitch. But whether you’re a small-business owner courting clients, a nonprofit organizer recruiting volunteers or a corporate leader making sure your employees understand the values of your company, the pitch still matters. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be boring, isn’t hard to put together and can still sound like YOU. • Identify, prioritize and communicate the most important details of what you do and how you do it • Learn how to make your pitch modular, so it can be easily adjusted for different audiences, and how to create an “ask” for every opportunity • Leave with a pitch ready to go and the confidence to tell your story and connect to the resources you need
