The Pitch is a Battlefield
and only the most steely-eyed warriors will be proclaimed victorious. There are high stakes to be won and lost in any pitch and it tests the mettle of a person to see when they find themselves in the pitch Thunderdome.
Ok, that’s all a bit dramatic. Anyone who’s ever found themselves giving a pitch will agree that there is an art to doing it right, however. Some aspects of pitching can be taught, some tricks are unteachable. Everyone who pitches learns what works for them and what doesn’t.
