Helping people and organisations improve their pitch.
Never lose attention, always be memorable and get a decision, quickly.
Back in 2006 I was working as a finance director. Whilst I enjoyed the role I found myself looking at the business development team thinking ‘I can land bigger and better deals’.
One day I decided to test my theory and I persuaded my boss to allow me to pitch for new business in my spare time. Working weekends and evenings I soon secured a six-figure deal and my life in pitching began.
Since 2006 I have pitched deals ranging in value from £300 to £30,000,000. I have pitched across a coffee table, across a board table, to a room of thirty people and to one individual, as part of a team or alone. I have not always won deals but I have always tried to learn from them.
What am I up to Now?
Most weeks I am pitching into businesses, trying to persuade them to buy a software solution my brother and I built.
In my ‘free time’ I enjoy practicing my communication skills and try to give a speech in public at least twice a week. Whenever I can I will also evaluate speeches, to date I have provided feedback on over 10,000 speeches.
I have helped people pitch everything from artificial intelligence to coffee plantations. I guest lecture on behavioural economics at University of the Arts London, teach pitching at University College London and speak on the topic at London Business School.
