    Presenter:

    Laura Allen

    The Pitch Girl

    The 4 Key Steps to Creating the Perfect 15-Second Pitch

    “So, what do you do?”

    It’s the first question people will ask you at a business event or even on a virtual Zoom call. How you answer this question will determine how successful you are at networking and landing new business.

    ThePitchGirl.com founder Laura Allen discusses the basics of creating an effective pitch, and shows you how you can use it to achieve your sales goals. After all, if you don’t ASK, you don’t SELL.

    You’ll learn:

    *What the 15-SecondPitch is
    *Why it works so well
    *The 4 Key Steps to Creating Your 15-SecondPitch
    *How to use your pitch to get others to WANT to introduce you to potential clients and partners!

    BONUS: We will select TWO people live on the webinar to deliver their pitch and get expert coaching from Laura right there on the spot.

    After you’ve seen Laura’s lively interactive presentation, you’ll never be at a loss for words when someone asks you, “So, what do you do?” You’ll be ready to answer with confidence because you’ve got your 15-SecondPitch.


    Laura Allen 

    Laura once closed a 5.5-million-dollar deal from a cold call. She also sent STAR WARS director George Lucas a 3-foot-tall steel pyramid. This stunt generated about 60 million dollars for her client. Laura has made a ton of money for her clients and employers because of her ability to pitch. Her goal now is to empower individuals to generate the sales they need to live the life they want.

    Laura has been written about in Adweek, The Financial Times, Crain’s New York Business, and The Wall Street Journal. She was interviewed on ABC News and profiled on NY1 News.

    Stay and Play
    Monday, May 3 – Tuesday, May 4

    Crystal Springs Resort
    Sussex County, NJ

    Stay and Play

    $250 per person (two people in a room) – includes overnight stay at the Minerals Hotel, Golf on Monday, May 3, on the Crystal Springs Golf Course – tee times approximately between 1:00 – 2:00 p.m., Golf on Tuesday, May 4, on the Black Bear Golf Course – tee times approximately between 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. Single Occupancy rate - $320

    Crystal Springs is also considered the most challenging layout in New Jersey. Despite measuring just over 6,800 yards from the championship tees, the distinct character of the club can be attributed to designer Robert von Hagge of Houston, Texas. Von Hagge has long been recognized as one of the leading golf course architects in the United States. One of the hallmarks of a von Hagge course is sculpted mounds that frame the fairways and greens… giving definition to each hole while adding an intense contrast of color between the fairways and roughs.

    When the limestone quarrying operations ceased in 1929, the site filled with water, forming the many natural springs that now dot the property. The clear waters at the 11th hole prompted the naming of the community, the golf course, and, ultimately, the Crystal Springs Resort.

    Black Bear opened in July of 1996 and has enjoyed tremendous popularity ever since. Boasting a 6,673-yard layout co-designed by famed developer Jack Kurlander, Black Bear offers you an inviting diversity of terrain, scenery, and shot selections.

    Stay and Spa

    $250 per person (two people in a room) – includes overnight stay at the Minerals Hotel, $125 Spa Resort Gift Card

    It’s time to rethink your spa escape. Whether you’re looking for a romantic rendezvous or are in need of a break with your besties, a Spa & Stay at Crystal Springs is the ultimate way to relax – mind, body and soul.
