Inspiring Pitching Across the Highlands
The aim of the Inspiring Pitching workshop is to help students discover how they can confidently sell themselves and their ideas in a business presentation. Students are able to practice what they already know and are given useful tips and advice.
The workshop covers areas such as:
- creating a positive impact
- building rapport
- clarity of message
- effective use of voice and body language
- dealing with nerves
- influencing skills
- handling questions.
Suitable for a range of students and able to be taught across a range of SCQF levels, this workshop is 2 hours in length and is active, fun with lots of learning taking place.
So far, we have run Inspiring Pitching to 38 students. The student groups covered were HNC Business from Moray College UHI and Visual Communication and Design from Perth College UHI and we have been booked to run a further session in February to Business students at Inverness College UHI.
