Event Details

Program Overview:
Have you ever wondered why you didn\’t get the investment? The potential funders loved the idea, they loved the team, they thought the market would be receptive… but, they wanted to think about it a little longer. In this enlightening session with world-renowned Communications & Leadership Expert, John Bates, you will learn the secrets behind pitches that succeed. You will leave ready to apply the secrets of PitchCraft to all of your talks. From internal presentations to fundraising and client pitches you will learn not only what works, but why it works.

John has trained teams whose pitches have gone on to raise hundreds of millions of dollars. In preparing this session, John enhanced his own extensive experience by interviewing many top funders in the healthcare ecosystem. From grant reviewers and high stakes venture fund managers to startup founders, John has gathered and distilled the principles, practices and gems no one ever discusses.

Even though you have a great idea, a great product, and a great team, you need to be able to communicate it well. Make sure your pitch skills are worthy of your idea, product and team. Make sure you are skilled in the art of PitchCraft.

The \’How to… Workshop\’ series is dedicated to giving you the keys to a successful business, from creation to exit. As with all our events, the \’How to… Workshop\’ is interactive and informal, so bring your questions with you!
