Whether you are pitching to investors, customers, suppliers or other stakeholders in your business, you need to articulate what is the opportunity for your audience to convince them to be part of your business.
A pitch isn’t the ‘be all and end all’ presentation. It is not to close the deal; it is a teaser to draw the intended audience into finding out more about your business and how they can get involved. It is to clarify key points that the audience would be interested in while avoiding any waffle or padding comments.
In this webinar, Loong covers three broad areas of a good pitch: The Problem, The Solution and The Opportunity.
