What can you expect from a TFN pitch coaching workshop?

TFN uses the term ‘coaching’ very deliberately. This is not a training session. TFN will help you understand your audience and craft your pitch for greatest impact.

The workshop is much more about content and clarity than style. The aim is not to create cookie-cutter presenters, they want your individuality and passion to shine through. You will leave this workshop with a compelling pitch that you can use over and over again. 

You can expect to leave the workshop with: 

  • A clear understanding of your organisation’s story

  • A logical and compelling storyline that succinctly communicates an organisation’s thinking

  • An understanding on how to conduct audience analysis and create targeted responses

  • The confidence to convey a narrative with greater clarity and to help embed the communications skills into everyday operational and strategic deliverables

  • Skills to map a narrative to sharpen the pitch.

  • Presentation skills to authentically tell your non-profit’s story for maximum impact

The workshop

The workshops are held over 2 sessions x 2 1/5 hours via zoom with a week between each session where you draft your pitch and then rehearse with the coach and other participants to receive feedback and to fine tune your pitch.
