An opportunity offered often to VT KnowledgeWorks member companies and Presidents' Council members is practice pitching our companies, whether to prospective clients or to venture capital investors.  VT KnowledgeWorks executive director Jim Flowers gathers a panel of expert volunteers who put themselves in the shoes of the intended audience, then offer feedback.

As Jim puts it, they're "a panel of savvy listeners who will give polite, but tough, feedback."

The next pitch coaching session is on Wednesday, October 21, 2009, for  1, 3, 10, or 20 minutes.  I'm signed up for a 3-minute pitch.

For my pitch, I'll do an in-person performance of  "The Anne Show," but if I had the flu, I'd ask someone to show this video for me.  It demos the challenge for which my social media public relations agency, Handshake Media, Incorporated, is a solution.
