Perfect Pitch – How to hit all the right notes and strike a deal!

This hands-on workshop takes young entrepreneurs through the process of developing an effective and engaging pitch of their business idea.

Whether pitching to an investor, a potential team member, or someone at a networking event, an entrepreneur must be able to communicate their idea clearly, concisely and professionally.

CEDEC’s workshop will demonstrate the importance of having a pitch ready that can be tailored to various occasions. We will look at the components of a successful pitch, including presentation tools and styles for different audiences (eg. a bank vs. elevator pitch).

*For entrepreneurs 35 and under (those older than 35 are still welcome).

*Workshop is offered in French only
