Have you ever wondered why you didn’t get the investment? The potential funders loved the idea, they loved the team, they thought the market would be receptive… but, they wanted to think about it a little longer. In this enlightening session with world-renowned Communications & Leadership Expert, John Bates, you will learn the secrets behind pitches that succeed. You will leave ready to apply the secrets of PitchCraft to all of your talks. From internal presentations to fundraising and client pitches you will learn not only what works, but why it works.

John has trained teams whose pitches have gone on to raise hundreds of millions of dollars. In preparing this session, John enhanced his own extensive experience by interviewing many top funders in the healthcare ecosystem.
