The MEDIA Office Galway, with the support of the BAI Sectoral Learning and Development Fund, will co-ordinate an intensive pitching workshop for audiovisual companies with Sibylle Kurz in May/June 2016. Sibylle is internationally recognised as one of the world’s leading pitch consultants and advises on leading MEDIA supported training programmes such as EAVE. 

12 audiovisual companies will have the opportunity to work with Sibylle in refining their pitch proposals. Attending participants must each bring their own project to the workshop. The workshop will assist in preparing and developing a possible pitch for each specific concept. With practical exercises and feedback from the group members and the trainer the participants have the opportunity to acknowledge and overcome their deficits in presentations.
