Workshop Description:

Join TransCanWork will provide an interactive opportunity for attendees to develop their professional pitch. The workshop will help attendees focus on their strengths so that they are able to “sell” themselves to employers.

Perfecting Your Pitch doesn’t end at employment. Our skills-building workshop will allow participants to build confidence. Their professional pitch can easily be converted to a more personal format so that you always have a way to quickly and efficiently introduce yourself to strangers or other professionals. We will go beyond just developing your pitch, we will spend time practicing how to deliver it with passion… and flair!

Come with questions and leave with answers (and maybe a few more questions!)
