There are three types of pitches.
The first is what is commonly called the elevator pitch; it’s 30 to 40 seconds long generally, although it can be a little shorter or a little longer.
The second type of pitch is the pitch that’s a tiny bit longer, two to three minutes traditionally, where someone may be standing in front of a group of people giving them an understanding of what they do or what they’re about or what the issue is.
The third type of pitch is a much longer pitch which may be 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 60 minutes, sometimes even longer.
David Julian Price coaches people in pitching. Pitching is different to presenting in most situations, because the purpose must be articulated clearly. One of the issues that is addressed right at the beginning is defining your crystal clear purpose, so that there is clarity for not only the person making the pitch, but more importantly, for the people who are receiving the pitch. The purpose needs to be simple and absolutely crystal clear for your audience to understand it.
It does not matter what your topic is, nor what service you are offering, nor what the product is. David’s goal is to bring all your strengths out in the pitching and make sure that any challenges you may have, which some people might call weaknesses, but he prefers to call challenges; to make sure that they’re played down.
David will give you practical methods to deal with things that you may have that get in the way, for instance, people who say umm a lot, or have an accent, or a service that is very common, or an unusual product or service :- David can deal with all of these relatively easily so that you will get more response from your pitch as it will be unique to your product and your personality.
David has the ability to work with your words and style, throw them in the air, and remix it all so that you end up with a punchier and more memorable pitch where people will seek you out afterwards to connect with you.
The pitch coaching will work on any style of pitch so that you get the results that you want.
