Pitch Your Business, Tell Your Story, a Workshop for Female Entrepreneurs

As entrepreneurs or business leaders, we’re in sales whether we like it or not. Every day we pitch ourselves, our businesses, our past projects and our client work to keep the show on the road. These interactions, accidental or planned are a brilliant way to generate opportunities without resorting to cold calling or sending emails that never get read.

Are you as prepared as you could be? Are you confident in how you tell your story? Can you keep things fresh and engaging for you and your audience?

Over the 1 day workshop you’ll:

  • Work through a step by step process to build your pitch & develop your story
  • Get practical tips on working with physical space for presentations
  • Practice and get feedback on the day

Whether you’re preparing for a big pitch or want to improve your accidental opportunities, at the end of this one-day workshop you’ll be more confident in how and what you communicate and your business will see the benefits.

Twitter Express Workshop: The Digital Hub, Dublin

Twitter has transformed the way we communicate in business yet many business leaders struggle to use it as an effective business tool and to successfully incorporate it into their standard work and business practices. It is a language made up of 140 character bursts, punctuated by hashtags and a vocabulary full of “@’s” and “RT’s”. Is it time for you and your business to brush up on your Twitter?

This hands-on workshop by Athena Media is for busy professionals keen to engage with Twitter and use the micro-blogging platform as a means of communications, marketing, sales, brand awareness, strategy, advocacy and information.

This express workshop will involve looking at case studies, exploring best practices, business strategies, an easy to grasp guide to twitter usage and most importantly it will outline the legal and rights based issues for businesses and professionals. The workshop will be led by skilled communicator and practitioner, Athena Media’s MD, Helen Shaw.

Athena Media has been running full workshops on Social Media & Online Content, Podcasting (Audio & Video) for six years and has helped over 1,500 companies both in Ireland and the UK to do better business online.

Twitter for Business Workshop, Dublin

For us, Twitter has been the best tool for getting sign ups to training courses. Twitter generates a good deal of revenue for us but the route is indirect. It works something like this:

  • Tweet out interesting things at the best times.
  • In between those interesting things, do data capture. (We populate our Mailing List and Interest list using Twitter)
  • Create segmented mailing lists that we send mails out to e.g. People in Dublin interested in Google Analytics.
  • Send mailshots directing people to the website and get course purchases from there.
  • Repeat.

What this workshop will do

  • Show you how to gain the right followers, have potential customers follow you.
  • Automate your marketing on Twitter to free up your time to do other things.
  • Have a Lead Generation plan for Twitter using Twitter cards. I’ve gotten 100s of leads from them.
  • Analyse how well you’re doing using Twitter’s own analytics tool.
  • Examples of Twitter PR campaigns we ran that got national attention.
  • Evaluate whether Twitter Ads are for you.
