Pitch Like A Pro!

During one exhilarating, fun, exciting day, participants undergo comprehensive and interactive entrepreneurial training on how to pitch like a pro! The session is facilitated by Justin Cohen, best-selling author, international speaker and TV talk-show host. After the training session, contestants pitch their ideas or businesses to the whole audience.

This is where things get really interesting, with both Justin and the audience providing feedback on how pitches can be improved. The regional winners of each leg will have the opportunity to be crowned the ultimate pitch champion at the final round of the competition. To be held in Johannesburg later this year.

There are many funders and investors invited to the final. Over the years, finalists have received millions of rands in investments and hundreds of thousands of rands in grants.

Book your place now for the Johannesburg workshop on 6 July. SMS “Pitch” to 43719 (SMSs charged at 50c) or visit www.pitchandpolish.com to complete an entry form.
