About this Event

MASTERCLASS 6 : BUSINESS OF DESIGN WEEK
Pitching skills for designers.

Can you pitch your design business in just 20 seconds? It’s a skill that every design studio and designer must have. Developing the ability to pitch gives you the edge to win more work and stand out from the pack.

While designers are used to stretching themselves creatively, the process of pitching often stretches them out of their comfort zone. Yet sitting with that unease is vital to building connections and establishing rapport. The simple truth is people buy from people, so pitching is simply an exercise in relationship building.

The ability to pitch successfully is not about being naturally good at sales, negotiation or management – it’s a specific skill that can be learned. With no hard and fast rules, it’s part presentation skills, part psychology and part science.

This masterclass will provide you with the tools you need so you don’t choke in your next pitch meeting. You’ll learn the secret sauce on how to sell a design solution without looking like you’re trying to flog snake oil. You’ll also develop the skills to help clients understand how you solve their problems. We’ll outline a step-by-step process to building a pitch that puts your audience at the centre of proceedings. And you’ll build and present your own pitch in a battle royale to win over your trainers.
