Pitch Perfect part two: Get direct feedback on your pitch

Synapse at CH.UNIVERSITY is hosting a second, free Pitch Perfect session for students, graduates, staff, and faculty on how to improve their professional and personal pitches. 

The Pitch Clinic event is Friday, November 13, from 12:30 pm to 2 pm. Attendees who take part in this second session will see how to improve pitches by applying the tips and resources from the first session, which was held last week. For those who missed the first session or who want a refresher, the Perfect Pitch recording and slides are available upon request. Submit pitch materials in advance (by 11 pm on Wednesday, November 11) for them to be considered for direct (but useful and kind) feedback by trainer Linda Plano during the upcoming workshop.  

The Pitch Clinic workshop will run 90 minutes. A perfect pitch successfully presents compelling ideas to grant managers, hiring managers, investors, family and friends, potential customers and partners, and colleagues and classmates. Registration is now open: http://reg.ch.university/
