SKU: N/A Category:


Do you have a great pitch?

Got plans for 2019 you need help with?

This is an event with three parts. We’ll pull a business card out of the pot and the chosen person will have the chance to do three things:

Pitch: Take this chance to practice your experimental pitch in safety. Today you’ll have three slides: Pitch, Challenge and Commitment (or no slides at all – your choice). Just as with all pitches, you’ll get a couple of questions afterwards to clarify any points.

Challenge: At the end of your pitch you can challenge the audience to help you. You can ask anything. What will be your challenge?

Commit: Your last slide will be your commitment for 2019. Perhaps this is your New Year’s Resolution or confirmation you’re going to double the number of customers within six months. We’ll take a note and call you up to see how you’ve progressed!

Today all you need is your business card to put into the pot and a thought about what will make 2019 really fly for you. So if you can help people, need help or have great questions for the people who are preseningt; come along!


Being Christmas there will be a surprise festive aspect to this evening’s event to get you into the season of good will.
