The natural ability to pitch and present effectively is a gift that keeps on giving. In your career pursuits, you may find yourself advocating for more marketing budget, the ability to work with some clients and not others, or if you go down the start up route, find yourself seeking funding or pushing your products to market. If you want to be heard you have to hone your pitching and presenting skills to ensure your voice cuts through to masses.
Join us on the 22nd of March as our panel present case studies on presenting and pitching. Whats worked, whats flopped and what they wish they’d done differently! Each will present some exercises and techniques you can practice to improve your public speaking skills.
After each present their experiences we’ll have around half an hour for question time, followed by networking over wine and nibbles.
Jen Burrows (Head of Management Consulting APRG)
Jen has made it her mission to overhaul corporate communications from lacklustre to the remarkable. She has a knack for converting uneasy speakers into brilliant presenters by working closely with them to increase their confidence, authority and presence when addressing any audience.
Her natural ability to connect, listen and emphasize with people also helps her to craft winning pitches that focus on identifying the most convincing arguments and encouraging her clients rehearse until they’re unconsciously confident and word perfect.
Since 2005, she has advised blue chip organizations and government bodies on their internal and external communications, facilitating transformational training events and deconstructing thousands of corporate pitches and presentations.
Jen’s genuine interest in the development of human potential through coaching and mentoring coupled with her professional experience means she has an intimate understanding of both the interpersonal demands placed on today’s senior leaders and the know-how to cultivate an individual’s promise in presentation and communication skills.
As a result, she is a sought after professional speaker on the business and motivational circuit, renowned for her engaging, entertaining and exhilarating style. Her presentations are as dynamic as they are fun, filled with personal anecdotes and accessible wisdom that leave audiences feeling inspired and enthusiastic for change.
