Philly-area consultant and BizClarity president and CEO Steve Bowman earned his nickname “The Pitch Doctor” over the 15 years he’s worked as a coach for entrepreneurs who are preparing to pitch to venture capital investors. Before that, he taught business, including at The Wharton School.
On Monday, Sept. 9, Bowman will be offering a free pitching workshop at The Mill from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and it’s open to all entrepreneurs, according to Horn Entrepreneurship’s recent newsletter.
From a description of the workshop on BizClarity’s website:
“Steve has a different approach to the ‘elevator speech’ and new ideas on how it should be taught. The elevator metaphor is over-done and too limiting. That’s why this workshop is called ‘How to Quick Pitch.’ Rather than stressing the writing and memorization of a short speech, he teaches a fresh approach that fits the wide range of circumstances where entrepreneurs have a fleeting opportunity to start a conversation or answer ‘what do you do?’ The workshop is interactive, hands-on, and includes on-the-spot coaching.”
(re: the out-of-touch elevator metaphor: No one told Robin Hood Ventures.)
In the meantime, here is some virtual advice from Bowman:
