Pitching: the ability to clearly communicate your message in a way that enrols and influences people into your projects.
Powerful pitching results in other people understanding you and getting excited. For that to happen, you need to really get clear on how much value you have to offer. You need to understand better than anyone the problems you solve and how that has an impact on people.
You must tap into your big mission and see that your work is in line with your values. Great pitching isn’t about having the right words; it’s about understanding your core value and expressing it clearly.
