John Lee of Folium Partners will be presenting his "The Perfect Pitch” seminar for entrepreneurs and other business managers who need to sell their ideas to an audience and then to ask for funding or other help. The seminar goes beyond the basics of PowerPoint or Keynote slideshows by teaching how to create pitch “recipes”, giving presenters maximum confidence and flexibility to suit any situation. Novice presenters and experienced managers will learn easy techniques and a few secrets to help keep the audience focused and engaged so that the messages have the best chance of hitting their targets.
