Pitching Successfully

As soon as we want other people to do, buy or agree on somenthing, we are pitching. Be it an idea, a proposal, a project, a product or an aspiration. The goal of a good pitch is not to convince others immediately, but to open the door to a conversation. And the success of that conversation depends as much on the recipient as it does on the provider.

In this seminar, you will learn how to actively involve your counterpart so that you come to a result that is interesting for both sides.
