Pitch, Please. – Business Communication Workshop

[one_half padding=”0 15px 0 15px”]- Course Description:

Whether you are a fine artist, filmmaker, or events producer you need to be able to communicate your needs to stake holders. You might be engaging with gallerists, brands, or clients and one of the fundamental components of this is being able to translate your needs into an ask. And then actually ASK!

As individuals fueled by passionate work, often times we accept less than we need or simply walk away from meetings unsure of whether it went well or not. This leads us to wasted time, and what’s worse our projects often fall flat because we are not able to bring on partners who can help us realize our ideas.

Pitch, Please is a communication learning group that provides an opportunity to improve your communication practice as an artist in business. Participants will identify needs and meeting outcomes, outline their communication style in relation to their personality, recognize obstacles to closing conversations, and create a personal practice to build better habits.

In this workshop we learn:

  • How to recognize and reach decision makers (relationship development)
  • How to communicate our needs and opportunity clearly (pitch)
  • How to frame mutually beneficial partnerships (negotiate)
  • How to deliver a clear ask (close)
