Pitching To Get Attention

May 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


If you’re a founder, or in a startup, or a consultant, or freelancer, or just looking to spread your ideas and build your business, you need to get your message out to people. Quickly and effectively.

You need to know how to pitch.

Join us on May 4th from 6:00 – 8:00pm at the ETC Baltimore offices for a FREE hands-on workshop to develop and hone your pitch presentation skills. This session is the ideal opportunity to learn, practice and enhance your ability to communicate and convince. We’ll focus on:

  • Who is your audience?

  • What do they want to hear?

  • Your key compelling messages

  • How to package your story

  • What to include, and what to leave out

  • Tailoring your pitch to customers, investors, partners, etc.

This program is a real working session consisting of actionable how-to discussions followed by interactive, hands-on practice sessions with critique. Expect a workbook and some simple homework to do beforehand. Plus, you can then use your new and improved pitch skills at our Open Mic Pitch Night on May 18th. (BTW, these are two great back-to-back opportunities to network and meet other collaborators, partners or potential customers.)

Space is limited. So register now for May 4th from 6:00 – 8:00pm. And get ready to roll up your sleeves and raise your sales game.
