This intensive and invaluable workshop will teach you how to develop your ideas in order to get them pitch ready. Learn how a pitch meeting runs, the goals of a pitch meeting, how to use visual aids, how to find your hook, and how identify who to pitch to. Participants are encouraged to bring an idea in any stage of development. This workshop is built to run over two days to allow participants time to implement what they learn.
