    The 4 Key Steps to Creating
    the Perfect 15-Second Pitch

    Presenter: Laura Allen, The Pitch Girl

    “So, what do you do?” It’s the first question people will ask you at a business event or even on a virtual Zoom call. How you answer this question will determine how successful you are at networking and landing new business.

    ThePitchGirl.com founder Laura Allen discusses the basics of creating an effective pitch, and shows you how you can use it to achieve your sales goals. After all, if you don’t ASK, you don’t SELL.

    You’ll learn:

    *What the 15-SecondPitch is
    *Why it works so well
    *The 4 Key Steps to Creating Your 15-SecondPitch
    *How to use your pitch to get others to WANT to introduce you to potential clients and partners!

    BONUS: We will select TWO people live on the webinar to deliver their pitch and get expert coaching from Laura right there on the spot.

    After you’ve seen Laura’s lively interactive presentation, you’ll never be at a loss for words when someone asks you, “So, what do you do?” You’ll be ready to answer with confidence because you’ve got your 15-SecondPitch.


    Laura Allen 
    Laura once closed a 5.5-million-dollar deal from a cold call. She also sent STAR WARS director George Lucas a 3-foot-tall steel pyramid. This stunt generated about 60 million dollars for her client. Laura has made a ton of money for her clients and employers because of her ability to pitch. Her goal now is to empower individuals to generate the sales they need to live the life they want.

    Laura has been written about in Adweek, The Financial Times, Crain’s New York Business, and The Wall Street Journal. She was interviewed on ABC News and profiled on NY1 News.

    No One Cares About Your Logo
    Presenter: Charity Gibson, Peerless Umbrella

    Whether it's a supplier or distributor self-promo, or an order we're producing for a client, there is something very important we need to learn even if it's not something we want to hear - No one cares about your logo. There is an old saying that says, "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." In this short, but powerful presentation you'll learn how to engage your current clients despite the market conditions, who is currently buying promo and for what purpose, and how to ensure that the products you sell make a difference to the people who buy and receive them. People don't care about your logo, but if we do our jobs right - they can and will.

    Learning Outcomes:

    • Engage your client despite the market conditions
    • Who’s currently buying promo and for what purpose
    • How to make sure the products you sell make a difference to the buyers & receivers
