Pitch Practicing in the Action Hub

The Pitch Practicing station in the Action Hub is an opportunity for you to practice your pitch to a range of (role-played) audiences. Colleagues from the field will be there, ready to listen to what you have to say and to provide feedback on your pitches in real time, helping you to make the best case that you can for what you’d like to achieve.

There’s no need to schedule a pitch practicing slot; just go to the Pitch Practicing Station in the Action Hub, and they’ll be waiting!
