It was another resounding success and more events in association with NatWest are to follow!

Amy Botes, Pepped Productions Natwest workshop 060318 2

 Pitching is more than throwing your ball into a park. You must play the game and have a winning attitude. We need to let the audience know who we are, what we want, what we will give them and why we are different.

Through her pitching skills workshop, Amy aims to teach you the communication skills to really power your pitch and boost your confidence. It also gives you the opportunity to network with fellow business owners.

In business, we pitch all the time; whether this is through face to face customer contact, advertisements, sales presentations, networking or even just chatting with your mate down the pub… who ends up knowing a bloke… who introduces you to your next client.

This workshop introduces you to professional acting techniques that you can use in any context to get you pitch perfect in seconds. You will come away having a better knowledge of:

  • how to use your body, mind and voice to engage your business audience and win them over.
  • how to structure a pitch.
  • how to make the most of the opportunities that are presented to us, even in the most unlikely of contexts

Here is a selection of reviews:

“Loved it. Well worth attending.” 

Bruno Reddy, Maths Circle Ltd

“I thought Amy was BRILLIANT. She kept it really simple and made us all feel at ease which made us all feel more able to be brave (for me at least)”

Camilla McLean, http://www.matthewcox.com.

“Great content. Very useful exercises. Good tips for structuring pitches and presentations. Super workshop. Glad I came.” 

Sue Bellingham, WOR(L)D Global network

“Different and enjoyable. Would recommend.” 

Mike Wing, WorldPay.

“Very friendly – informative and interesting workshop, taking me out of my comfort zone, and both pushing/guiding me to challenge how I come across. This was all done in a way that put all who attended at ease throughout the workshop. Would highly recommend.”

Ashley Briggs, Belville Computers.
