Workshop: How to Pitch



You believe in your business idea and you want to convince others to do the same? Usually, you get very little time to present yourself and your idea -- this makes pitching very challenging. The workshop How to Pitch provides you with all the tools you need to make your pitch most effective: Learn to identify the content that is relevant to your audience and how to make your pitch clear and constructive; practice in hands-on exercises to be concrete and concise and to engage your audience.

This workshop is the perfect place to improve your communication skills, to practice your pitch and to learn about common pitfalls and mistakes.
1. Introduction, frame setting & motivation.
2. Warm-up exercise: learn about your communication style, your strengths
and weaknesses.
3. Theory: How to make a pitch clear and effective.
4. Practice in small groups: Give a 2-minute pitch, get feedback and repeat;
with optional video recording of the pitch for personal use.
5. Discussion in whole group: What did you observe? Summarise pitfalls and common mistakes.
6. Theory: Notes on how to use slides & infographics.
7. Final remarks, Q&A, feedback.
When: 16th of October 2019; 15:30 – 19:00
Where: Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area, Gewerbestrasse 24, 4123 Allschwil

Participants need to have an idea of the content of their pitch – but a fully prepared pitch is not necessary for participation.
