‘Pitching for Success: how to present yourself and your company with credibility and confidence’

A key part of running a successful business is being able to articulate effectively what it is you do and what makes it different, and yet so many people struggle with the basics of pitching and presenting their ideas effectively.

Kay will be sharing pointers from her workshop which helps founders to successfully navigate their way to hiring and managing tech staff efficiently, and without tears!
