PRESENTING YOUR IDEAS, CONVINCING YOUR AUDIENCE
Pitching is a necessary part of professional creative practice, whether it’s discussing an idea for a work, talking to funding bodies about a project, or participating in a competitive pitch process or competition. It’s fraught with legal and marketing challenges, and needs to be approached in a thoughtful and strategic way. PITCHFACE is a relaxed workshop that provides practical advice on how to tell your best story, how to protect your ideas, and simple tips and tricks to avoid the ‘elevator pitch’ and build lasting relationships with the people who can help bring your ideas to life.
The workshop takes a practical and professional look at:
+ Preparing for the Pitch – script, presentation, and you;
+ Putting together a ‘live pitch’;
+ Presenting online and in writing;
+ Protecting yourself legally;
+ The all-important Follow-Up.
What do I get? All participants of this workshop also receive:
+ Lifetime access to a dedicated PITCHFACE Dropbox folder full of additional resources and workbooks to help continue the learning after the workshop is over;
+ Access to additional free webinars to supplement the material covered in the workshop;
+ The possibility of further one-to-one business advice, mentoring and support from one of our creative industries business specialist advisors.
All questions are welcome in this relaxed, safe and inclusive workshop. Participants are also encouraged to share their own experiences and network with their fellow practitioners.
