What clients said
“This course has everything you need to know about pitching with manageable units, helpful case studies and some highly useful supporting materials to help you apply the content to your own circumstances.It takes the anxiety out of what can be a daunting process, by providing solid advice on content and presentation. Terry comes across as a real person with her own invaluable insights and practical experience to share, rather than just another slick marketing guru. Highly recommended.” Margaret P. Leeds 2019
