Our pitch preparation process allows our semi-finalists to take part in unique presentation workshops and one-on-one meetings with industry leaders. Our goal is to help them prepare for the semifinal event which includes a live presentation in front of an audience of investors and c-level professionals from the industry. Those selected will then receive additional workshops and personal guidance in preparation for their “pitch perfect” moment at the finals in October.

 

The guidance process will be led by Barry Katz Ltd. The company was founded in 2001, and its team of experienced trainers has been selected for the third consecutive year to support the presenters in designing and delivering their best pitch. The trainers selected to work on “THE PITCH” are seasoned experts who have coached thousands of presenters, entrepreneurs and keynote speakers in global environments, competitions and roadshows. Their focus is placed on helping presenters identify and clarify a concise, clear message and then deliver it in a powerful and compelling style.

 

The Barry Katz team believes that NO ONE WILL RECOGNIZE A GOOD IDEA UNLESS IT IS WELL PRESENTED. Great ideas do not sell themselves. The presenter has to pitch an idea in a way that instantly grabs and keeps audiences attention. This can be best achieved with an authentic and unique style, with a simple easy to understand, clear and credible value statement.
