How to win client pitches

For pitch teams: presenting your ideas with confidence, flair and gravitas

Do you want to give your pitch team the edge over the competition?

All members of staff should know what your company stands for, and be able to articulate what makes you different from the competition.  In fact – they should be able to reel off your company’s “elevator pitch” whenever the opportunity presents itself, not just for new business pitches.

This one-day course is designed to help your team win more pitches.  The course is largely practical with on-going speaking exercises to build staff members’ confidence in pitching your company and presenting their ideas.  Participants on the course will learn how to overcome nerves, and how to pitch your company to new clients with gravitas and credibility. They will practise answering challenging questions from clients in a Q&A role play where they will pick up invaluable tips on impromptu speaking and learn how to leave new clients with a positive lasting impression.

This is a bespoke course that will be tailored to the needs of the client – it can be focused on a specific upcoming pitch, or more generally on pitching and presenting skills in a B2B environment.

What will your staff learn on this course?

  • Build unshakeable confidence in pitching and presenting
  • Practise giving a powerful 1 minute elevator pitch on your company
  • Learn how to speak to time to ensure no valuable pitch content is lost
  • Practise handling difficult questions from clients with grace
  • Pick up 5 key tips to overcome the physical symptoms of nerves
  • Practise using body language and voice techniques that convey gravitas and credibility
  • Learn an invaluable technique to stop you from ‘going blank’ when presenting
  • Do a dry run of a new business pitch with expert critical feedback

“Thanks so much for all your help and input with my pitch. Safe to say I smashed it, so am eternally grateful to you guys! I got really great feedback from the panel and everyone else in the room. Somebody even came up to me afterwards saying “Don’t let anyone ever tell me in future that I’m not a public speaker!”. I will be singing your praises in my exit interview of the business course to encourage them to make you a core part of their training.”Jody Vandenburg, Director, PixelPoint Group
