GMN’s Perfect Pitch Contest
If you found yourself in the elevator with your CEO, what could you tell them in that time about your work in grants management that would make a difference?
You’ve got 180 seconds to knock their socks off. Can you do it?
Inspired by conference plenary speaker Andy Goodman and the Goodman Center’s Fast Pitch storytelling workshop, GMN hosted our own storytelling contest for grants managers and other GMN members to learn how to make their case in just three minutes. Contestants receiveed coaching from high-level grants managers and had the opportunity to refine their pitches as they worked towards the live webcast of the Perfect Pitch contest and a chance to win one-on-one sessions with a professional career coach.
GMN’s Perfect Pitch contest was webcast live on September 23, 2015, at 1:00 p.m. ET. Congratulations to Lisa Stegman, Sr. Manager Business Capabilities at PetSmart Charities, for winning our first-ever Perfect Pitch contest!
