Pitch Coaching

Craft a compelling pitch to fuel your fundraising. 

Since inception, TFN has provided pitch-coaching to over 1,200 non-profit leaders, many of whom have gone on to pitch at our events and collectively receive more than $18 million. Overwhelmingly, these presenters have stated that the pitch-coaching was just as valuable as the donations they received, with many confirming that it led to more successful funding applications, pitches and relationships following the actual event. 

We now offer our pitch coaching workshops as a stand-alone offering:

Pitch Coaching Workshop – This interactive workshop features a dynamic mix of communications theory, self-evaluation, case studies, storytelling, presentation practice and a focus on ‘why’ people respond to a pitch. Participants are provided with practical and simple tools to enable them to plan and deliver a pitch in any circumstance as well as 1:1 coaching and feedback. Originally delivered as a half-day workshop, we are now offering it virtually across two 2.5 hour sessions approximately 1 week apart.     

Impact Storytelling - Sharpen your organisation’s storytelling skills and learn how to identify, capture and structure compelling stories that will connect with your audience.  You’ll will walk away with the skills and confidence to craft impactful stories and powerful narratives to demonstrate outcomes and impact to influence supporters, funders and partners.  This workshop can be delivered virtually in a 2.5 hour workshop.  

As a non-profit charity, TFN operate a cost-recovery model whilst trying to become less dependent on our philanthropic funders over time. To learn more, including pricing and availability, contact Andrea Heffernan (andrea.heffernan@thefundingnetwork.com.au.) 


"How to connect with people through storytelling was something that really stood out to me. It was something I discovered during the pitch coaching workshop – the idea that you can pitch through a story or a conversation rather than a formal presentation"
