Feedback from our previous Perfect Your Pitch workshops:
Brilliant, I came in without any knowledge of how to pitch and came out with a good knowledge
The workshop really increased my awareness of how I need to word my pitch
Gave me lots of ideas and helped me to gain a greater understanding of the funding world

We know we do good work but how can we convince potential partners, funders and organisations to work with us?
Often we only get a few minutes to tell others what we do, how we do it and what difference we make.
Your organisation's pitch is probably the most important part of your business development tool-kit if you are to make first impressions count.
This workshop will provide you with some tips and hints to perfect your pitch and test it out with a group of funders and larger providers.
Who should attend?
This workshop is designed for smaller organisations who want to build relationships with larger providers and funders.
Anyone in your organisation who is responsible for developing partnerships, business development, bid-writing and service development.
What we will cover
Through a highly interactive and participative workshop, we will help you to hone your organisation’s employment and skills offer into simple and impactful statements. We will also look at simple communication tools and strategies to help you standout in Expressions of Interests and PQQs.
The Getting London Ready workshops are funded through the Big Lottery Funds Programme Development Fund. The PDF aims to ensure there is widespread awareness amongst VCSE organisations of the forthcoming Big Lottery ESF programme, to publicise opportunities for the sector to access funding under the programme and to develop productive and sustainable relationships between organisations that will lead to high quality applications and services.
LVSC's work on employment and skills through the London Employment and Skills Policy Network is made possible through the on-going support of Trust for London.
