Invitation to "Life's a Pitch" workshop

From: Kent S.
Sent on: Tuesday, September 23, 2008 11:25 AM



You may have noticed that I am scheduled to give a workshop at the Midwest Entrepreneur & Small Business Conference in mid – October. This event was rescheduled from the original mid-September dates.


This workshop is one part of the 10-session Entrepreneurial Leadership Experience ?that the Coalition developed with the Des Moines Higher Education Collaborative while I was Executive Director of the Pappajohn Center. Some of you may recall that we ran out of time and money needed to ‘field test’ the program and to improve it.


With that in mind, I am inviting members of the New Iowa Entrepreneurs’ Coalition (up to 16 participants) to participate in a ‘dress rehearsal’ of the workshop presentation at no cost in order to help me practice, refine and improve the presentation and materials.


Workshop description -

“Life’s a Pitch – Is Your ‘Big Idea’ and Opportunity? ?- Ideas are a “dime a dozen” but you and I (and all your relatives and friends) know that your idea is GOLDEN. The trick is being able to objectively evaluate and successfully implement that idea. That's much more difficult. As Einstein said, genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration. This workshop will guide you through a process of evaluating your idea and the associated risks, turning the idea into a business opportunity and the first steps to building a successful business venture.”


I have scheduled the training room at the E-Myth Benchmark Offices (6000 Grand Avenue) on October 1, 2008 for this event. We will begin the workshop at 5:45 PM and we should be done in 1 ? or 2 hours. ?The price of admission is that you will promise to evaluate the content, presentation and associated materials that are a part of the workshop.


Please let me know if you are interested and I will reserve a slot for you – Space is limited to 16 participants – Please send your reply to [address removed]


Thanks for your attention to this note.
