Event Details

Learn how to build the perfect your pitch presentation with the help of international design and content experts who’ve worked with the most famous brands in the world.

Few things in business are as important as the pitch presentation. What other single event can make so much difference?

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a well-handled, exciting pitch will boost your career - and it hardly needs adding that an unexciting pitch could destroy it. More than any other business skill, your pitch presentation chops must be razor-sharp if you want to succeed at your job.

This one-day course offers the unrivalled opportunity to have your pitch deck skills reviewed and rebuilt by two master craftsmen: the former creative director of Rolling Stone and an award-winning editor, both of whom have pitched and won clients such as Cisco, the UN, the European commission and Guardian Masterclasses.

Learn the secrets of persuasion and book your place now.
