Multi Class Course
Start with your Why and from there design how you reach people. This two-part course will help identify your considerations for your own powerful portfolio and share with you some tips to be successful in pitching to clients.
In the first session, we will work together to help you identify your ‘Why’ and consider ways that you can convey your values in how you design your portfolio. We will also discuss the key elements of one’s portfolio and identify what is critical for you to include and what might be a distraction to your future clients. Looking at a few examples and considering some different platforms to use, learners in this course will walk through some practical elements and things to think about when designing their own portfolios. Following the session, we will provide a few examples and tools to consider using along with future reading to help one go further extend their learning.
The second session will focus on how to deliver a meaningful and impactful pitch to clients. Working from the premise of Chris Voss’ work and Simon Sinek’s work we will break down the key elements to a pitch and questions to answer when designing your own pitch. After the session learners will have more confidence and understanding of what they need to do to share their product/ services with clients.
The sessions will be interactive and learners will be expected to have their cameras on, microphones ready and a willingness to engage.
To get the most out of these two sessions be sure to have your calendar free so that you can focus on the session with little distraction. In addition, consider what you really value and why you do what you do. Since the sessions are short we will dive in very promptly. If you have time ahead to watch Simon Sinek's TED Talk on How Great Leaders Inspire Action it would help you make more sense of the material.
Teaching is like a constant thread of pitches in that to be successful one needs to know her learners and make connections between them and their aspirations and the content.

She has over 25 years of experience in teaching all levels and all contents with great success. For this course she has worked with her business partner, Rajashree Anand who studied graphic design and marketing has been successful with her own entrepreneurial ventures prior to EduMenTeach.
Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time
