#SpkPgh: Quit Your Pitchin’!

KST Presents

6p :: Doors Open for Pre-event Networking at 5p
Kelly Strayhorn Theater
5941 Penn Ave :: Map

Presented by Fygment Productions

Before any brand or product becomes as a household name, it has to lift off from a cluttered landscape. The spark is often times a single pitch to a journalist and the rest can be history. Fygment Productions has put together a pitch panel of influential national and regional King and Queen makers, including:

  • John Biggs, TechCrunch Editor
  • Sally Wiggin, WTAE
  • Diana Nelson Jones, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
  • Kim Lyons, NextPittsburgh

Plus, at least three lucky founders will be invited to pitch their story to the esteemed panel. The panel will tackle the big questions, including:

  • What facts and figures matter most to reporters in a great pitch
  • How to properly pitch via email
  • How to do a GREAT in-person media interview

There’ll also be ample time for Q&A and time to mingle to follow (maybe even more pitches!)
