“I found pitching at Pitch Lab not only fun but incredibly helpful. It was great to get the opportunity to challenge myself and get valuable feedback on my performance (more than 'yeah that was great'). I'll definitely be back!” 

- Lisa Woods, Director of Global Growth Investing and M&A | Assurant

“The whole experience was great from the decks and topics to the judges to the organization and flow of the evening. I’d recommend it to anyone looking to improve his or her presentation skills. I also liked the diversity of judges, because every one of their respective areas of expertise is key to a great presentation.” 

-Patrick Murphy, National Account Executive | Pandora

 

"I was really excited to speak at Pitch Lab because the whole concept allows you to focus on getting better as a presenter. The insights from the comedian, improv expert and public speaking expert were very useful and I had a lot of fun. Normally when you pitch, you have your heart on the line because you want your project to succeed. With Pitch Lab, you get to have fun with your topic and really hone in on where you can improve as a presenter."

- Isaac McGaha Miller, Author at Sexpot Comedy & Galvanize Student

 

WHAT WE LEARNED

According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right?! This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy!
— Jerry Seinfeld
