The Bad Pitch Blog: Uncovering Great Pitch Secrets and Lies

Professional Development Workshop Set 1

In the social media age, it’s easy to send a single pitch and have that pitch scorned by many. Twice as many people see these bad pitches. Twice as many people can share these mistakes with their own social networks with the click of a mouse. It’s not just being outed; it’s being outed and cached in Google multiple times as people pass these stories around like free lunch coupons. Attendees will walk away with The Bad Pitch Blog’s secrets and lies to better pitches.
