'Perfecting the Pitch' seminar

Chemical Sciences Scotland
Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow
Thursday, September 25, 2014 - 13:15 to 16:30

The Chemical Sciences sector continuously develops new products or processes through innovation, dedication and application. However, these concepts and ideas still need to be ‘sold’ to others such as customers, funders, potential collaborators or suppliers. 
Understanding the importance of presentation, and of conveying your proposition and its benefits articulately can help you deliver more effective pitches.

This workshop will cover:

  • The ‘kissing with confidence method’ for constructing a powerful and effective presentation
  • The ‘elevator pitch’
  • Embracing the fear
  • Self presentation: marketing yourself and your product
  • Making the emotional connection: creating and maintaining rapport during the pitch
  • The art of delivery, including body language, energy, spontaneity and creativity, and communication as a two-way process
  • Enhance your performance in pitch situations
  • Use body language and voice to positive effect
  • Understand the importance of effective preparation
  • Be aware of how to make the essential emotional connection by linking technical details with stories, analogies, and metaphor
  • Understand how to inject energy, creativity and spontaneity your pitches
