Pitching a project workshop

With Andrew Comben (Chief Executive, Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival)
Susanna Eastburn MBE (Chief Executive, Sound and Music)
Alasdair Tait (Chief Executive, Young Classical Artists Trust)

2-4pm, Thursday 31 January 2019

This free workshop is intended for those with an established music-focused project. The panellists will offer feedback and guidance on presenting ideas effectively, and advice on approaching and pitching to promoters. Spaces are limited to 6 and priority will be given to those on the Sounding Board project mentoring scheme.

Attendees will be expected to prepare a short pitch for their project, which will be discussed as part of the session. The workshop is intended to provide an encouraging and informal space in which to develop ideas, rather than a Dragon’s Den-style inquisition!
