CHESHIRE AND WARRINGTON BUSINESS GROWTH PROGRAMME: Effective Pitching: Developing a Compelling Business Pitch

Do you struggle to explain your business in a succinct and exciting way?

About this Event

Registration: 9.00am

Start: 9.30am

This hands-on half-day workshop will help you to both prepare and deliver a compelling ‘pitch’: essential for effectively publicising your business to customers, suppliers, funders and all others who want to know what you’re about.

The hard bits are succinctly defining your ‘Value Proposition’, and then delivering it confidently, concisely and in a variety of different situations. The good news is that it is remarkably simple to do if you use the right tools – and especially if you have convinced yourself you are not cut out for pitching (you are!). You will come away with a differentiated Value Proposition, and a tried and tested ‘elevator pitch’ safely under your belt.

Introduction to your Workshop Provider

This highly interactive workshop is delivered by Mark Bosworth. With over 30 years’ experience in industry across commercial roles in numerous sectors and territories, Mark is seasoned in pitching products and services. He now trains, advises and coaches in this and related areas, with a clear focus on presenting not just the tools to do the job, but also the even more important ‘mental mindset’ to instil confidence and competence in even the most reluctant ‘pitcher’. His workshops focus on clear structure, hands-on practice relevant to YOUR business and plentiful of opportunities to discuss and learn from each other.
