Pitch Academy

pitchacademies

The Thaler Pekar & Partners Pitch Academy directs individuals and teams in highly effective customer and VC pitching. You and your team will become confident in your ability to efficiently craft a presentation that empathizes with, engages, and persuades enthusiastic buyers.

This fast-moving and practical exploration draws on techniques from storytelling, theatrical performance, and behavioral psychology. You will have ample opportunities to practice pitching and build on your abilities.


“As a creative agency, we wanted skills and techniques that would help us communicate our creativity in exciting and effective ways. Not only was it extremely helpful in developing skills that will help us during presentations, but it was also an incredible team building and bonding experience.”
– Aimee Rivers


“I admit to initial misgivings at the prospect of using what I considered to be unorthodox methods to expand my effectiveness. What I found, however, was a serious and well-structured framework that taught me valuable skills to leverage the unexpected.”
– Eric Métivier, Head and Managing Director, Corporate & Government Solutions, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce
