Hey, this is Harsha from cindog media. This was the first time I had made this pitch in front of a live audience outside of the idea to impact intensive that inspired me to create this pitch (run through the Canberra Innovation Network – Grateful!). If you are in Canberra, you really need to go to this – wherever you are in business, you will gain great value!
Leading up to the event, I was practicing the pitch every moment I got – in the car, in the shower, walking. When I got to actually do it, regardless of how it came across, my knees were shaking (one of my legs is a little weak from an accident I had, so my knees were shaking and I was just aiming to keep standing). However the practice paid off, and the words just flowed out.
We are always critical of our own work more than anyone else, and I think personally I could have delivered it with more emotion and eye contact.
However I think the real success is just showing up and doing it, no matter how it goes, what happens, who says what. You can alway make it another version of how you want it to be the next time you do it! Love to hear your thoughts and feedback.
