Start Your Engines And Get Ready To “Speed Pitch”

PubClub of New England Speed Pitch






Thursday, May 4, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)

Ever wished you could have a few minutes of one-on-one time with a top journalist or analyst?  A chance to engage in a real conversation about why your product or service deserves big-time coverage?

CLICK HERE to start your pitching engines!

Back by popular demand, The Publicity Club of New England will be hosting its fourth annual “speed pitching” event, featuring some of the area’s most sought-after tech influencers, including:

  • Jim Rapoza, Senior Research Analyst, Aberdeen, @JRapoza
  • Kelly O’Brien, Reporter, Boston Business Journal, @BosBizKelly.
  • Jordan Graham, Business and Tech Reporter, Boston Herald, @JordanMGraham
  • Jesse Scardina, News Writer, Tech Target, @JesseScardina

 Here’s how it works:

  • You’ll have a chance to meet one-on-one with two influencers during the evening.
  • Your homework ahead of time is to develop a tailor-made pitch for each influencer you’ll be meeting — no shopping a one-size-fits-all pitch to the group!  This is a great opportunity for you to research that writer/analyst, understand what they cover, and assess which story angles will make them take notice.
  • You’ll then sit down opposite that influencer during the event and have two minutes to make your case for why your product or service deserves their attention.

Once the speed pitching portion of the evening is over, the influencers will address the group, share general feedback and invaluable tips for what it takes to capture their interest in a story, and answer your questions.  And of course you’ll enjoy light refreshments throughout the evening and a chance to network with the New England-area public relations community.
