The client’s perspective

In the majority of cases, we recommend a 1 or 2 day course, followed by an Embedding & Elevation event. We also offer ½ day or ‘bite size’  Pitch Skills workshops and Pitch Preparation workshops.

We also suggest that learners are encouraged to explore key principles and models, before their workshops, via our digital learning tools.  Then when learners join us in the training room, the focus can be on practising key skills and sharing expertise and experiences. Digital learning is also there to support learners as they apply and embed new approaches in role, after their workshop.

1 Day
Our 1 day Presentation Skills and Pitch Excellence courses cover the key skills and techniques for preparing and delivering impactful presentations or pitches.
2 Day
Our 2 day courses cover presentation/pitch skills and techniques in greater depth. On day 2, we challenge delegates to pitch or present individually and/or in groups in a range of relevant scenarios.
Bitesize or 1/2 day
Our shorter, bitesize Pitch courses are designed for those attending a Key Account Management or Business Development course who want to understand how our techniques apply in a pitch scenario. These courses are fast paced and are best suited to those with significant pitching experience.

“Our team won the pitch for £30m which they started to practise during the January training course.  The feedback was that although we were very similar to our competitors we concentrated more on the client and seemed to want it more, which just gave us the edge….I count this as another win for the training!”  Partner, Smith & Williamson.
“I was delighted with this programme which has now given us a fresh framework for some great pitching….Wonderful to see such great performances! It was a proud moment to see our team delivering with such confidence and enthusiasm!” Distribution Director – Workplace Solutions, Aegon.
“Excellent. The team have real expertise, gravitas & knowledge in this area.”  Sales Relationship Manager, Aegon.
“Quite challenging but in a good way. Completely re-addressed the way pitches are structured and made us focus on what we are really trying to say….Best presentation course to date!”  Investment Manager, Smith & Williamson.
“Engaging speakers, set at a very useful level & specific to our firm/industry. Very helpful, interactive and will improve the outcome of future presentations.”   Investment Manager, Smith & Williamson.
