Georgian College’s Henry Bernick Entrepreneurship Centre (HBEC) and Creative Nomad Studios, in partnership with the City of Orillia, are excited to host the second of six XcelerateHER Orillia events on January 26.
At this event called Pitch Perfect, guest speaker, Jan Bailey, The Clarity Coach, will lead an interactive workshop designed to ignite ideas and spark new ways of thinking about and executing a business pitch. Pitching to become an industry leading entrepreneur requires authenticity, transparency and the ability to motivate and persuade. Attendees will learn how to create clear, relatable messaging and product descriptions, how to allow their personality to shine, and how to naturally story tell to convey their message.
The series will continue to support women in improving their business pitch, developing growth plans, tapping into industry mentors, and developing partnerships with like-minded entrepreneurs over the next five months.
All upcoming XcelerateHER Orillia events will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. at Creative Nomad Studios (23 Mississaga St. W.) on the following dates:
• Jan. 26
• Feb. 16
• March 30
• May 18
• June 15
Space is limited and participation will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. Visit online more information and to register for this free event.
