How to Win a Pitch – an Interactive Digital Masterclass

Neil Mullarkey and Gavin Presman




In this interactive masterclass, you’ll learn how to prepare, create and perform a winning pitch – whether online or in real life, for your business or for yourself.

Successful pitching is an essential component to sustainable growth. It is key to a winning culture, and is worthy of investment and commitment to ensure it is done effectively.

Get it wrong and pitching is a waste of resources, time and energy. Losing creates uncertainty and drains confidence. That seeping morale permeates the entire business. But failure is far from inevitable. Winning pitches is a human skill that can be taught and learned.

Neil Mullarkey and Gavin Presman are two of the country’s pre-eminent business trainers, with decades of experience practising and teaching some of the world’s biggest businesses how to pitch and win. In this two-hour interactive masterclass, they will pass their insights on to you.

They will reveal the most common pitching mistakes and how to avoid them. They will show you how to prepare, create and perform a winning story. So that, the next time you receive a RFP or have to pitch your business or yourself, you will not be all at sea. The chances are, you’ll win.

Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or a beginner, the session will provide practical guidance on how to create a winning pitch.

You will learn:

• That pitching is about the client and the value you create for them.
• How to listen to create rapport.
• How small changes in language can make a big impact.
• How to be assertive and create confidence in others
• How to create a compelling story, understanding the power of narrative, to create real engagement.
• How to give a winning performance
• How to use technology to power your pitch
• Virtual etiquette and short cuts

This digital masterclass is highly interactive, with face-to-face interaction with the facilitator, and exercises between participants conducted in breakout sessions. The masterclass is conducted over Zoom.

This talk takes place at 3:00pm British Summer Time.

Praise for the course leaders:

“Neil has transformed how engaged & how engaging our teams are with the art of storytelling. He instantly puts folk at ease with his disarming, passionate and unexpected approach and provides useable/practical tools that make an instant impact at scale. Nothing can prepare you for Neil descending on your team. A natural introvert who transforms into a force of nature, presenting his ideas with passion and gusto. His general disdain for corporate waffle always elicits a warm and knowing response from his audience and gives them permission to break the rules.” – Dave Lewis, CEO of Tesco
