  • Online Workshop: Pitch With Posture

    Needs a location

    $50.00

    It’s the most commonly asked question at networking events… and your answer can make or break your business: “So, what do you do?” If you answer well, you generate interest. Opportunities. Potential Clients. You can win over a room in moments. But if your answer is vague or uncertain, you can lose their interest in a split second… and you’ll have to work twice as hard to get it back. In this workshop you’ll learn how to fine-tune your business pitch, capture the attention of new contacts, and get people interested in your offer. We'll cover: The one rule of marketing engagement to rule them all (especially when pitching!) When to use a business pitch… and when to throw it out the window. The exact pitch structure that transforms strangers into collaborators. It's actionable. It's easy to implement. And your marketing will flow like butter. "How well and often you practice your business pitch can make a potentially life-changing impact on you and your business." - Lindsay Kolowich The cost of the online workshop is $50 USD, and includes a recording of the event.

This course flows so well, we would recommend it to absolutely anyone who wants to grow their business." - Michelle & Alyx, interior designers "My approach to marketing used to be scattered and not specific.
