  • Q&As and Visual Aids: How to deal with difficult questions from clients / PowerPoint slides that support the pitch / Writing effective scripts and speaker notes / Handouts

The Practice Scenarios

The best way to improve your pitching is through rehearsal and feedback, these trials will take place throughout the training so that you can develop and grow your approach as you progress.

We advise as much practice as possible of the pitch, individually and as a team (where relevant), but we will also design realistic questions, which will test your ability to deal with client Q&As or difficult audience members. These bespoke practice scenarios are normally recorded on camera for playback and review.
