MASTER CLASS – postponed

A practical guide to storytelling in pitches

In the face of the current situation with COVID-19 and the safety measures put in place by the Federal Government, we have decided to postpone the Master Class. A new date will be announced as soon as the risk of further spread is contained.

We had been very much looking forward to welcoming you for this event. However, what counts even more than bringing our community together, is keeping everybody within and beyond it healthy and safe. Honouring our responsibility both as an organisation and as individuals, we take all necessary precautions in resuming our operations.  

Stay healthy, safe and up to date – we’ll be in touch soon!


The secret of a powerful pitch is not only what it is about, but how it is delivered. Can you reach your audience emotionally?

Join our master class and learn the fundamentals for delivering engaging and informative presentations that can be used in front of investors, banks and other stakeholders. 

You will understand how to structure your pitch deck, wow your audiences with engaging stories and succeed in communicating your business case with confidence, with practical examples given.

Who should attend?

Those looking to improve their start-up pitches and refine their presentation skills. 


This workshop is open to everyone free-of-charge. Space is limited and offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
