Masterclass 3: Pitch Perfectly

Once you are making progress with your startup and you are ready to share your idea with others, pitching becomes very important. With a pitch, you try to sell your idea, product or service to potential customers, investors and employees. Since we live in a high-paced society, it is of the utmost importance that you are able to convey your message concisely and in an interesting way. Due to the campaigns and promotional messages of products everywhere, you have to be able to stand out. To realize that, both the content and delivery of your pitch need to be of good quality.

The right delivery of a pitch depends on multiple factors. Both verbal and nonverbal communication is vital while getting your message across to your audience. More specifically, this involves your posture, the way you compose yourself, what you do and what you say. All these aspects play a part in giving that killer pitch. The content of your pitch needs to be complete and concise in such a way that your audience has a good overview of your idea or product without an excess of information and facts.

During the masterclass, you will receive a pitch training from the one and only Mark Robinson! Mark has given presentation skills training to over 500 people, spoken at a TEDx event and shared his knowledge with a packed audience at ASML. He is also the author of the Amazon #1 bestseller ‘Speak, Inspire, Empower’, a book completely devoted to the art of giving persuasive presentations.  What makes Marks’ training so special is the fact that he applies the perfect balance between practical skills and relevant information. There is a strong focus on actually practicing your pitch and receiving positive feedback from both Mark and your peers.

The masterclass starts with an explanation on what to do and what not to do. Hereafter, you will create and present your own pitch. After receiving feedback, you will have the opportunity to adjust your pitch based on the feedback and present your improved pitch again!

After attending the masterclass, you will be able to:

  • Build up your own pitch storyline          
  • Use non-verbal tricks to assist your pitch
  • Inspire & empower your audience
  • Deliver a powerful pitch to your audience
