PitchingOur “Learn to Pitch” Mini-Workshop on THURSDAY, JUNE 18th, 2015 was a great success!  In 15 minutes we learned a process called PACES with guest speaker Kevin Smith who has delivered thousands of pitches, and an inspiring presenter. His story development process PACES, shows you how to focus on your audience’s problems, present a solution, demonstrate credibility, prove it, then get them to take action. Thank you so much Kevin for the inspiration and tutorial. If you missed the evening presentation check out Kevin’s website,  The Story Architect. He is a member of several startup communities and innovation centres in the GTA.[/column]
