Changemaker Week 2019 – The Art of Pitching for Social Good

Tue, Sep 24 2019

Pitching for social good—how should you tell people about all the good you’re doing in the world?

You want to change the world, so you would think that telling people about it is the easiest thing you can do. However, the confused looks, misaligned or disengaged employees, lack of investment, engagement or customers, and a frustrated spouse, may say otherwise.

Conversely, when you get the right story for your business, you will have those you talk to referring others and making valuable introductions. You will find it easier to get investors and win customers, and your team will be excited to tell others about working there.

Most pitches and explanations are jargony, too long, uninteresting and not engaging. Join us to create the best way to talk about the social impact you are making—to everyone. In this session, you will build a short plan, a three-sentence pitch, a one-sentence pitch and you'll learn how to own a couple of words on Google.

Attend and learn how to:

  • Better understand your Net Positive Impact.

  • Identify who your client is (and isn’t).

  • Tell your story.

  • Get investors, customers and collaborators excited to engage.

Presented by: Colin Christensen, THNQ
