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.

The difference between winning a pitch and losing can be so slight, that you need to ensure your pitch is presented confidently and with maximum impact.

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 VR for a unique learning approach. At certain points throughout this Sales Pitch and Closing course, you'll be prompted to practice what you've learnt in VR.
