Pitching your product, service, or idea to prospective clients and partners can be intimidating. Learn the art of crafting a persuasive pitch while boosting your delivery skills in this experiential workshop with GoldJam Creative!

During this two-hour workshop, participants will:

  • Learn how to connect with their listener by activating their emotions and earning their trust;
  • Develop a pitch that showcases credibility and calls the listener to action;
  • Practice thinking on their feet to respond to interjections and field questions;
  • Humanize products and services by making them more relatable and easier to understand;
  • Craft and deliver a brief elevator pitch to the rest of the group.

Please wear clothing you feel comfortable moving in, if possible, and arrive with an open mind. This workshop will be fun and highly interactive!

Pre-Work: Participants will be asked to prepare one thing to pitch: an idea, product/service, or themselves!
