Focus on the objectives: While you’ve envisioned an amazing masquerade themed soiree for your next corporate event, you might want to think about your objectives before you actually pitch your event. If the objectives for the event is just to provide employees with a simple internal team building exercise, asking everyone to dress up and cover their faces with masks kind of defeats the object – right? Just note that with in depth research, you’ll be able to speak directly to your client or manager’s needs. Centre your pitch around key objectives to sure you gain the attention of those you’re presenting to.

Keep it short and sweet: Think about the number of meetings you sit through each day. Whether it be client facing or internally, you’re busy. With that in mind, crafting a simple pitch that doesn’t take hours to sit through is ideal. Not only does this show you respect your team or your client’s time, but it means whatever you do say has to add value. Present your key points only and you’re onto a yes.

Involve your audience: Sure, a snazzy proposal deck will help your cause and show that you actually care, but simply standing in front of a screen and reading your notes isn’t always enough. Why not create a little quiz or a game to get people involved and amp up the excitement? This demonstrates how much you care and often, it’s the people that go make a lot of effort with their pitch that come out on top. Especially when you’re being pitted against others!

We’re all programmed to understand stories, and an in-depth story can help you build a real narrative throughout your proposal.
