Pitch like a pro
Anyone who has ever been asked to ‘just’ prepare a pitch will recognise how difficult it can be. You often have a maximum of 5 minutes to present your product, yourself or your vision. What do you talk about? And perhaps more importantly: What do you leave out? How do you make sure you stay authentic and don't make it too slick? In this tailor-made training, you will learn how to give a short, powerful but personal pitch that will ensure you stand out.
What is the target group of the ‘Pitch like a pro’ course?
It's intended for professionals who want to present themselves, their product or idea with more impact, enjoyment and flair in a short pitch.
Content and method
After a short introduction, you will work step by step on an interesting pitch that suits your target group. You practice, hone your skills and receive tips from our trainer. Video recordings are made of your pitch, which you can watch in peace after the training. It may be uncomfortable at times and sometimes even confronting, but certainly unforgettable.

Marije Klomp's winning pitch
Marije Klomp, Programme Director for Sustainability at Radboud University, has been named CSR Manager of the Year 2022. In'to Languages supported her in preparing her pitch.
Marije Klomp: “Sarah Dresden from In'to coached me on my pitch for the CSR Manager of the Year election. Despite my years of experience giving presentations, webinars, lectures and workshops, the pitch format felt rather awkward. You have three minutes to present a catchy story, from memory, and with good use of voice and posture.
Sarah gave me tips that helped to me really embody and feel my story, instead of rattling it off. I also felt strong and confident. I obviously managed to convey this feeling to the audience, because I won!”
