Who hasn’t trembled at the thought of presenting our ideas or a business proposition in front of others? I have.
Pitch School is for anyone who wants to: improve their presentational skills; overcome nerves; learn how to pitch a business idea; or persuade others to buy your services.
I’ve been lucky enough to spend a lifetime doing just that. Pitch School™ is partly me paying something back to the amazing people, communities and businesses who taught me so much.
Pitch School™ is here to help you. From the novice getting started, to ideas for the most experienced pro to add more polish. The classes can be run affordably, under your brand in-house too.

“A brand needs to go to the heart and not to the brain. Gorilla is – in those 90 seconds – trying to take you somewhere.”

“Not everything that is faced can be changed.
But nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
James Baldwin 1962
“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”
“What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.”
