Pitching tips to think about
Peter has shared with us a selection of key points when presenting as a startup or speaking in public:
Begin with a bang
You need to grab the attention of your audience from the second you kick off. Think about a something that provokes curiosity. A concise story, a shocking statistic or unexpected statement. A you-focused question to the audience can also be effective – “Can you think of the last time when…? Get the audience thinking. Keep them tuned in.
Limit your key points
With so much to say it’s often a temptation to squeeze everything into the presentation. Rather than touching on lots of different points, try focussing on 3 or 4 key points and sharing them very well. This keeps your message more concise and you won’t get lost remembering your presentation.
Use anchors
Simply, anchors are devices you can use to make your key points stick! They hook key points helping your audience grasp the message. Stories are great examples.  Analogies, metaphors and acronyms are equally effective anchors you can always use to create impact.

Craft a compelling closing
Your last impression should be the best one! Use the opportunity to summarize your key points and tie them together to share your overall message. State very clearly your call to action or the next steps you’d like your audience to follow after listening to your speech.
