    Making Rain: Prep, Pitch and Close Making Rain: Prep, Pitch and Close Presentation Transcript

    • BlackBerry attended the Professional Women in Advocacy Conference in Washington, DC from December 8 to 10, 2013. Here's a quick summary of the presentation delivered by Ann Sullivan, President of Madison Services Group.
    • RULES OF ENGAGEMENT The world is your oyster Think like an entrepreneur Set realistic goals Know your revenue targets Build on relationships – yours and everyone else’s
    • PREP Who do I know? What do I know? What should I know? Can I fill a need?
    • PITCH Open friendly – Don’t be in a hurry It’s ok to give free information Appearance matters Lead with an idea, not a company Be quick on your feet Even when you aren’t pitching, you’re pitching
    • CLOSE Know when to hold, know when to fold Get to the point Do the paperwork It’s business, not personal
    • COMMON MISTAKES You don’t do everything well Lack of follow up Too much follow up Overpromising/underperforming Hesitancy to talk about money Seeing obstacles instead of solving problems
    • Ann Sullivan, President Madison Services Group
