Powerful Pitching, with Jonathan Talbott of Talbott International Presentations (TIP)

A business pitch, just like a great pick‑up line, is an invitation to further conversation – or, better yet, to further action. However, all too often we end up feeling more like helpless teenagers than successful businesspeople. We all need to pitch many times a day, whether it’s explaining what we can do for potential clients, selling our best ideas, or generating investment in our startups.

Instead of helping you create a pre-formatted “Elevator Pitch,” Jonathan uses a method that takes your audience into consideration and helps open discussions with them. This leads to expanded networking, more sales and better business.

“It was fun, informative and inspiring. Jonathan asked specific questions that got the participants making creative pitches within one hour.”
— Kirsten Lentz, Buurt Talentz

About the speaker:

Jonathan-TalbottJonathan Talbott has assisted in the creation of thousands of pitches: from investment and fundraising pitches that bring in millions and competition-winning pitches that create new networks, to simple, memorable, one-line pitches designed to attract interest.

Clients include the YouTube sensation Guard from Above (eagles that neutralize drone threats), and the Dutch humanitarian organization Cordaid, as well as startups associated with incubators/accelerators in Athens, The Hague, Eindhoven, Copenhagen, Geneva, Maastricht and Munich.

Jonathan Talbott founded TIP (Talbott International Presentations) in 2012 with the ambition to make the world more interesting, one presentation at a time. Since then his clients have included both small and multinational companies, non-profits, universities, start-ups and political parties.

He increases business people’s confidence and improves their reputations by refining the content, form and delivery of their presentations. He works with his clients to create goal-oriented pitches and presentations which are an intergral part of internal or external marketing campaigns.

Jonathan is based in The Hague and is the head speakers’ coach at TEDx Delft, one of the Netherlands’ largest TEDx organizations. TEDx speakers he has coached have, collectively, achieved more than 1 million views online.
