“Pitch” is not a dirty word! You got into the wedding profession because of passion, not because you love sales. But “making a pitch,” asking for and deserving to get the business, is an art form that can be learned.

In this interactive session, you will work in a team setting, making a pitch to a mythical client several times over. Each time you will learn more and get better as judges – your colleagues – give you instant and valuable feedback.

Learn valuable tools in communication, branding, messaging, and promoting and leave the event with a higher set of skills as you interact with others in the group and with the judges. By the time you leave you will be able to sell and close a deal more effectively, making yourself more valuable to your clients and to your company.

Learn how to communicate clearly and effectively how to put your passion into words that lead to getting you the business.
