About this event

Writing a Great 60 Second Pitch

How well do you talk about your business? Can you explain what you do and why in around 60 seconds? If not, you will be missing opportunities to grow your business.

Take some time out of your busy day to learn more about the importance of being able to tell others about your business quickly and simply.

These are exciting and challenging times for many London smaller businesses. Owner-managers like you want to rebuild sales after a difficult 18 months, and they tell us how getting noticed and heard above the marketing noise can be really difficult.

Experts at Brunel University and NatWest are using their expertise to help get firms like yours in a better financial and sustainable position to thrive. This free online webinar will take you through:

• Why a 60 second pitch is so important

• How using content rules will help choose your words

• What a solid pitch structure looks like

• How to perfect your pitch delivery

Join this session as we break the 60-second or ‘elevator’ pitch down into its component parts. You’ll come away with a clear understanding about what to put in and leave out and how to structure your words for maximum impact. We’ll give you all the tools, tips and hints for you to crack on with writing a pitch you’re confident with. We’ll also share some great practical tips when pitching to an audience of 1 or 100.
