Come out and participate in the final day of George Brown College’s Global Entrepreneurship offerings by attending this very interactive and informative skills development day!

We will begin the day with a hands-on learning experience that will teach you the principles of Design Thinking and how this process can help you really get to grips on your entrepreneurial offering.

Next will come a very interactive workshop to help you build confidence in networking and presenting.  Guided by two fantastic facilitators you will feel comfortable and safe in a subject matter that general instills fear into most people.

We will finish the day with a session on pitching, after all, if you can’t articulate clearly in a concise manner what solution your business will provide for your identified problem to a defined targeted customer then you will struggle to raise finance or make sales.  We will use a case study company to practice delivering a pitch in a safe and relaxed environment.
