Startup Masterclass: Public Speaking Tips - How to survive the Pitch Q&As
Why your pitch deck might be killing your chances of startup success - the secret of defending your ideas and facts in the Q&As!
About this Event

For any entrepreneur, public speaking is an inescapable challenge; and when you’re starting a business from scratch, this aspect forms the very foundation of determining its success.

Public speaking provides an entrepreneur with the opportunity to effectively communicate and engage with prospective clients, customers, and investors. It helps build credibility, establishes trust, and will drive people towards your startup.

At the end of every pitch session, investors have the chance to ask questions about your company and want to know more details of what you mentioned in your pitch: The Questions and Answers – the Q&A. How to survive the Q&A, what can you say and what you must not say during such a session will be content of this workshop.

Find out how you can

  • … prepare for the unprepared
  • … react diplomatically to hostile questions
  • … find the balance between precision and depth in your answers
  • … structure your thoughts clearly while in the spot
  • … practice, practice, practice
