Pitch Perfect: Crafting Your Quick Pitch
Everything you want to accomplish through your organization begins with the story you tell. No matter what role you play—from volunteer and board to programs and development staff, everyone has the opportunity to draw someone in with a concise and inspiring answer to the question—so what do you do? We will roll up our sleeves alongside you in this interactive workshop. Our main goal is to distill the essence of what you do and why you do it into a quick, engaging pitch. We’ll explore how your quick pitch translates into more committed supporters for your organization and how to adapt it to different audiences and settings. Our format will simulate real life—come prepared with a pitch in mind, and we will refine it and practice together in real time. You will leave with a quick pitch you are proud to share everywhere from the grocery store to the board room.
