Delivering an Effective Pitch will be an active workshop during which participants will receive training on how to optimally pitch artistic and creative projects.

Led by Dr Nicole Bugeja, the workshop aims to equip participants with public speaking techniques towards optimal and successful pitching of one's artistic work and portfolio. 

The workshop will commence with an overview of what creates an impactful pitch. Nicole will then coach public speaking skills and will guide a group activity in which participants will have the opportunity to apply these skills. The workshop will close with dedicated time for questions and answers on the topic.
