Inzenden Videopitch Hogeschool Inholland 2019
How important is a first impression or a short pitch? Really important if you find yourself standing in front of an International Sales Director and you only have 30 seconds to introduce yourself. Or what if you have a great idea and you want to become an entrepreneur? How important do you think a pitch is? Very important as entrepreneurs need to be able to sell a story or an idea. A pitch is so important but underestimated by so many. Pitching will help you get that job, and pitching will help you sell an idea. It is a skill worth mastering when you want to work in a commercial work field.
