About this Event:

Pitching with Purpose

If you haven’t got a clear 60-second pitch, you could be missing out on opportunities to grow your business every day. Even in such uncertain times, you never know when the opportunity to support others may arise, so it is important to be able to explain your business quickly and simply.

Join the NatWest Business Builder team as we break the 60-second or ‘elevator’ pitch down into its component parts. You’ll come away with a clear understand around what to put in and leave out and how to structure for maximum impact. We’ll give you all the tools, tips and hints for you to crack on with writing a pitch you’re confident in and proud of straight away. We’ll also share some great practical tips when pitching to an audience of 1 or 100.

Our brilliant speakers:

Heather Waters (@heatherwaters15), Regional Enterprise Manager North West, NatWest Business Banking

Nick McCafferty, (@NickAccelerator), Enterprise Acceleration Manager, NatWest

Adam Clayton, (@Adamclayton4321), Local Enterprise Manager, Manchester, Greater Manchester, Lancashire

We have an interactive question board ready for the social Q&A and social engagement taking place before, during and after the event and we’d like you to send in your questions for our speakers before 5pm on Tuesday 27 April.
