Communication and public speaking expert Jackie Miller will lead the Pitching for Success master class, a live, online three hour learning experience. The class will reveal proven techniques to clarify the message of your pitch, successfully connect with your audience, and enhance your physical presence to effectively engage potential collaborators, funders, and other stakeholders. You’ll leave with a toolset of practical strategies that will help you command the room during any opportunity to pitch or present your project. This class will be designed for those with pitching experience looking to enrich their current skillset as well as those new to pitching techniques.
The master class includes the opportunity to observe 10 classmates present their pitch and receive live feedback and coaching.
