Deliver more successful sales pitches

Winning pitches is key to the success of any business. However many salespeople rush the process, lack impact and don't deliver key information during the pitch. It's not always the best proposal that wins the deal, it's the one where the salesperson has built up a rapport with the prospect and presented effectively.

This unique course combines online classes with realistic practice in virtual reality. First, you'll learn how to prepare for the pitch, build rapport with the prospect, ask for business, and much more. Then you'll build confidence by practicing these skills in a range of virtual scenarios within the VirtualSpeech VR app.

Online learning, done differently

We combine online learning with practice for a unique learning approach. At certain points throughout this public speaking course, you'll practice what you've learned.
