  • How to manage public speaking nerves
  • Techniques for presenting online

Throughout the masterclass you will learn the RED method for a #pitchtastic pitch:

  • Research
    (includes clarifying your objective and specific questions for gaining a thorough understanding of the audience and the information they require)
  • Express
    (includes how to create and structure your content, open and close with impact, what elements to include in the pitch and what to leave out, techniques to bring the pitch to life)
  • Deliver
    (includes how to prepare mind, body and voice to communicate powerfully, techniques for managing nerves, the importance of confident and credible body language, engaging the audience and building rapport)
