We’ve all been there. You’re sitting on a gold-plated concept that can disrupt your industry, so you call a meeting to pitch it to potential stakeholders. You’re brimming with enthusiasm and your idea is truly great… yet the pitch fails. Why? You didn’t find the right words to win over your audience. And this is essential if you’re going to deliver a kick-ass pitch!
Pitch training is a key tool in the kit of any good entrepreneur, startup founder, accelerator head, sales person or business event organiser. Fortunately, being able to set out your idea, spin a tight story, highlight the benefits, and play on an audience’s emotions isn’t something you either have or you don’t. It’s a skill you and your team can learn, just like anything else in public speaking.
This is where Berlin Speaking comes in. From elevator pitch to project pitch to startup pitch, our Berlin Speaking pitch training will prepare you and your team for any pitch situation. Whether your focus is on customers, investors or a different audience entirely, we’ll guide you through the fundamentals, the advanced practices, and the nice-to-haves when it comes to wowing decision makers.
With a strong passion for technology & academic background in science, we empower scientists, researchers and tech experts to present data effectively and craft informative presentations for any audience. We offer you the communication skills you need through hands-on sessions designed to provide you with an engaging and informative communication concept for your area of expertise. Whether you have a research proposal presentation coming up or you’re a tech guru looking to pitch a new digital service to investors, Berlin Speaking will teach you how to craft scientific presentations and make you a master communicator of complex concepts.
