Only one in four new business pitches wins. What factors will make your new business presentations beat the average? This seminar uses the presenter’s experience of working with both agencies and clients to pinpoint the elements which will make your pitch stand out, create an emotional impact and achieve memorability (most don’t). The seminar is designed for pitch leaders. How will you decide who to involve? Should junior people play a prominent role? Should you develop an agency ‘playbook’? How will you use visual aids and props? You can win or lose the pitch at all five stages of the sales process. This seminar offers A to Z recommendations on setting a pitching strategy, winning a competitive advantage at all five stages, and landing the business.
