Mastering Q&A for Your Pitch


Friday, November 20th

Main Street Landing Film House, 60 Lake St, Burlington, VT

Presented by the Kauffman Foundation, in partnership with CEDO and Main Street Landing

Nathan Gold is an internationally known presentation and pitch coach who will help you perfect your Q&A for your pitch. Entrepreneurs usually spend a lot of time preparing for a pitch, but most do not prepare for the Q&A session that typically follows. Nathan Gold presents a workshop that will help you become more aware of how you answer questions and what you could be doing to be seen as a more persuasive, credible, and likable leader during the Q&A.  Learn more about Nathan at
