Course Description

Tangent at Trinity – Masterclass in Pitching your Idea

Trinity College Dublin

Do you need people to back your ideas? Whether it’s convincing your boss, getting support from colleagues or securing cash from investors, sometimes it all comes down to a single compelling proposition. The secret to a successful pitch is 10% presentation and 90% preparation.

In this masterclass, you will learn how to engage your audience in a way that sets you up to succeed. You will explore ways to give your pitch a simple yet effective structure that will hold your audience’s attention and influence their decision making. You will develop a presentation style that is personalised and authentic, and learn simple techniques to overcome public speaking-related anxieties.

This is for anyone in business who needs to create a convincing argument that will persuade colleagues, managers, potential clients, investors or other stakeholders to support their venture. It is relevant for intrapreneurs seeking to gain support for their business ideas from colleagues and decision-makers, and is equally applicable to entrepreneurs and startup founders pitching for investment.

The masterclass is offered in two formats:

  • Taster session
  • Masterclass

The taster session is designed to introduce you to the topic of developing and pitching ideas. It provides a unique opportunity to sample the material, ask questions and meet those involved in developing and delivering the masterclass.

The masterclass provides a comprehensive understanding of pitching design and delivery. It explores pitch design for different audience types. It introduces techniques of visual communication and gives participants the opportunity to reflect on their authentic voice and personal challenges when it comes to pitching.

Completion of the taster session is not a pre-requisite for masterclass participation.
