Be Pitch Perfect Any Time: How Speaking Up Can Grow Your Business

November 15, 2016
5:30 pm
- 8:30 pm

Be Pitch Perfect is a motivating presentation designed to improve the quality of how you present yourself. You need to sell your best product, which is you. You never know who links to whom, so we need to be ready to “pitch” our products and services anytime. If it can save you time and make you money, it’s worth being ready with your request or message. You may find riches in the elevator, in the check-out line, or on the side of a soccer field. Your personal pitch needs to be relevant, timely, and effective.

Mimi Donaldson will show you how. She is an internationally-acclaimed speaker who coaches others to manage the public speaking butterflies. She provides an action plan to help you:

  • Use your energy in positive ways to burn off nervousness.
  • Analyze your audience prior to preparing your pitch.
  • Organize your pitch based on your audience’s concerns.

The presentation is interactive because the handout invites immediate response from the group. Each person works on filling in their “formula.
