How to Persuade : Proposals and Pitches

When you are presenting a proposal or a pitch, you are trying to do more than simply a speech to inform. Instead, you are trying to persuade.

As stated in the article Proposals and Pithces published by Toastmaster International, there are 4 steps to prepare a pitch:

  1. Determine your purpose.
  2. Analyze your audience and determine its needs.
  3. State your main message and support it.
  4. Urge the audience to take definite action.

 

For more tips, check out the below youtube video on how to deliver a great pitch.

“The key to delivering a great pitch is your ability to engage, connect and be present. While your ideas may be brilliant, you want to make sure that YOU are the one lighting up the room. ”

Practice is the key to helping you improve in public speaking. Join a toastmaster club and learn how to persuade.
