Next Meetup

Register for this social about developing the perfect pitch - It's FREE!
This is a really relaxed and chilled out meeting. Plus it's in a bar, so alcohol is available if you need extra means of relaxing. This is a safe place to share ideas, and when you feel ready, you can have a go at delivering your pitch and getting feedback. It's not about selling your product or service to each other, but if someone from your target market is there, go for it! Use that opportunity to get the best feedback you can, from the people you most want to connect with. To deliver a really good pitch takes A LOT of practice. It starts with a great script and then you practice it until you completely own it and it becomes a part of you. But you don't want to practice and practice and practice, and then find out it doesn't work, so this is a great place to try out ideas, ask questions, get second opinions and have a good time doing it. And, it's completely fine to come along and just listen and learn. I look forward to meeting you.

What we're about

The most important skill for any entrepreneur is the ability to pitch their ideas in a way that 1. people want to know more and 2. people want to get involved.

You start with an idea. You develop your idea and do some research. At some point you might tell your partner or a close friend. If they like the idea and you need some funding, you will soon find yourself pitching the bank or some investors (fail here, and its back to the drawing board).

In time you will need to pitch some customers or clients, and perhaps some staff. If you want to run economically, eventually you will end up pitching your vendors for better deals or better payment terms. If you are a savvy entrepreneur, you are going to pitch ideas to potential joint venture partners to help grow your business.

Everything you do as an entrepreneur starts with an idea and turns into a pitch, so you can share that idea in a way that has people want to know more and then get involved.

Most pitches are done face to face by talking to someone, but if that’s not your thing, you may choose to do it all in words. This is copywriting. You can pay others to do this for you, but you still need to know enough about it, that when you look at their work, you know if you are looking at good copy or bad copy, otherwise you could be wasting your money.

If you would like someone to talk to about your ideas, work on your pitch (or copy) and get supportive but honest feedback, then meet up with me and a few others at The Temple Bar. We can have an interesting chat and I promise you will go away with stacks of good stuff.

I love to support people who are looking at taking the leap into entrepreneurship. You don’t have to be committed to anything just yet. You don’t have to have it all worked out. We all start somewhere. Just come along and listen, learn and share if you feel like it.

I’m currently working on a book for people much like yourself who are looking for ways to get more out of life by finding better ways to deliver more value, i.e. becoming an entrepreneur.

I look forward to meeting you at the Temple soon. I usually arrive bang on 7pm and head straight upstairs. If there is an event on upstairs, then we will be downstairs at the back of the pub.

(FYI: My social media is a little out of date and I’m not very active there just yet, but I will be soon. As soon as I publish my book it's all getting updated.)
