Most people hate to pitch. And they’re often pretty bad at it. But there is another way. Before launching Canada’s largest early-stage venture capital fund, Pat Lor mobilized a generation of creators by teaching them how to pitch for maximum impact. Alongside start-up coach George Damian, he'll demonstrate how the simple act of introducing yourself can unlock trust and connection. In this session participants will learn the art and science of pitch, engage in peer-to-peer learning, and then put it into practice to see if they can convert a room full of strangers from skeptics to champions.
