The Pitch Doctor Supports Tomorrow's Entrepreneurs
I've been invited to deliver a training session at Peter Jones' Enterprise Academy, and having met Peter at The Entrepreneur Festival in Sheffield recently, I know how passionate he is about supporting a new generation of business leaders.
I know that politicians talk a lot about enterprise and investing in the future, yet it really is vital that today's business owners give some thought to the legacy they leave for tomorrow. What we do and how we run our businesses shapes the economic climate for the future, and just when we think that everything has been invented, that every new idea has been taken, someone comes along with something so unique yet so obvious that creates a new market. Technology evolves at an incredible pace, and that in itself creates new opportunities.
Yet the basic principles of business remain the same, and one of the most important of these is the ability to pitch - to get your message across so that your brilliant idea or business plan doesn't just gather dust on the shelf - it becomes reality, and shapes the world that we live in, ready for the next generation of entrepreneurs.
