“I did a pitch coaching session with Melanie and walked away with much more clarity and confidence about how to build a pitch that’ll actually get people interested. I couldn’t believe that in such a short amount of time, I was able to understand so many puzzle pieces I had been missing before. She knows what she’s talking about and explains the ideas clearly..” – Josee Perron, Pitch Coaching Client
One more thing…
This masterclass has been designed so that you can apply what you learn straight away. We encourage you to come with your questions to make the most of the session.
What the Community is Saying About our Pitch Masterclass
“Melanie’s pitch masterclass was amazing, full of insights and ideas to use in my communication strategy and improve my speech. She is a great professional and knows a lot about this. Totally recommend it!!”
“The content was very complete, and very well explained. It helped me as a guidance of the way I should start focusing my project.”
“I really enjoyed your masterclass! Thank you, your presentation was very engaging and packed with great insight.”
“I need to generate passionate believers and supporters. I can see more clearly now how to create the ‘right’ pitch, and pull that off.”
“I will mirror what other were saying, it was really really good. I’ve done the pitch workshop thing a couple of times and this one was really effective.”
Is this Masterclass for investor pitches only?While the content has an investor pitch lens, only about a third of attendees actually intend to raise, while others are wanting to learn how to ask for other things – access to networks, mentors, funding from government etc.
In the first half of the class we work through thinking about your end goal, and how to develop a story from this. The second part of the class will cover more investor pitch ‘buckets’, though all of these pieces you should know and be able to speak to in your business. I will also talk about top mistakes I see from pitchers and have some time for q&a.
Where is this class held?This Masterclass will be held online on zoom. A few days before the class we will send you the login information and other relevant details.
Do I need to prepare anything in advance?We suggest that you bring questions, as well as any customer or client stories that you might have. This isn’t required, but will help you get into the frame of mind.
There will be interactive elements of the class, so we suggest that you have your mic and video on. You will not be required to speak, but we do encourage this so that you get the most out of the class.
