Session 8: Business Pitching

Importance of Pitching a Business Idea



Each individual student can stand in front of the group and describe something for 15-30 seconds. It can be anything in the room, the weather, or talking about their favorite subject in school & why. Have students critique each other.

What did they do right?

What could they have done better?


ACTIVITY: Business Pitch

Create your 30-45 second pitch for your business.

Students can work with others if they are presenting the same type of business or service.

  • What is your business?

  • Why should people buy your product or use your service?

  • What makes your business special?

  • Will you reveal your special price?

  • What makes you different or better than the competition?

  • Make your "closing line" or "last line" a really catchy line to make your audience want to buy your product or use your service!

Spend about 20 minutes preparing and each person or group will "present".

Practice your pitch.

Make this FUN and ENGAGING!

Remember to keep your presentation between 30 and 45 seconds.

Session 8: Business Pitching

Importance of Pitching a Business Idea

Pitching helps you share your idea with others, like investors or customers. It's like telling a story that makes people excited and interested in your idea. When you pitch well, you have a better chance of getting support and turning your idea into a real business. So, let's learn how to become a good public speaker!

Presentation Skills

To become a great presenter, there are a few key things to keep in mind:

1. Confidence: Believe in yourself and your message. Stand tall, speak clearly, and avoid fidgeting.

2. Practice: Practice your presentation multiple times before the actual day. This helps you become more comfortable and familiar with your material. Prepare notes to use during your presentation.

3. Eye Contact: Look at your audience while you speak. It shows you're engaged and helps you connect with them.

4. Voice: Vary your tone and volume to keep your audience engaged. Speak loud enough for everyone to hear, but not too loud.

5. Body Language: Use gestures to emphasize your points, but don't overdo it. Your body language should match your words.

6. Visual Aids: Use visuals like slides or props to support your message. Keep them simple and easy to understand.

7. Engage the Audience: Ask questions, tell stories, or share interesting facts to keep your audience interested.

8. Time Management: Stick to your allotted time. Being respectful of your audience's time shows professionalism.

9. Adaptability: Be ready to adjust if something doesn't go as planned. Flexibility is a valuable skill.

10. Feedback: After your presentation, ask for feedback from peers or teachers. This helps you improve for next time.

Remember, becoming a great presenter takes practice and patience. The more you work on these skills, the better you'll become. So, let's start practicing and mastering the art of presenting!
