Self-Pitching Masterclass: Showcasing What Makes You Exceptional

Do  you know that you look brilliant on paper but you dread an important presentation or a job interview? 

Does pitching yourself or your ideas feel like a skill other people have that you were never taught?

What would happen if you could influence the decision-making of others?

Do you want to be the person in the room who makes people sit-up and say “wow”?

 

You can be a powerful and influential presence…but like most people you probably have never had the chance to exercise your communication muscles.

 

Join us on June 30th for a half-day workshop with experts from Stemm Commercial to learn the skills and practise of effective communication and pitching yourself.

In this experience-driven workshop we will be exploring powerful concepts at the heart of influential communication including:

  • Identifying your audience
  • Understanding how to reach them
  • Defining your personal “why?”
  • Learning how to deliver a persuasive performance
  • Embracing your personal brand and remaining genuine

 

You will leave the masterclass with new skills and knowledge as well as a honed self-pitch ready to impress decision-makers, potential collaborators or future bosses.

 

The day will culminate with the option to record your one-minute self-pitch, which can then be taken away as a ready-made resource to share online and help you always make the best first impression.
