SRA Competency D


Some types of professional work are won entirely through informal pitches and formal tenders. And most professionals (whether lawyers, accountants or surveyors) will be required to prepare a pitch or tender at some point in their career.

Writing and presenting a persuasion pitch relies on strong communication skills and an understanding of the sales process.

This workshop guides you through the pitch development process and focuses on the skills needed to form a strong relationship with the prospective client, assess their needs and motivation, formulate a winning sales strategy and communicate persuasively in written documents and presentations.

The aim is to help you improve your conversion rate.
