David began pitch coaching in 2013 at world-renowned accelerator Startupbootcamp. After pitching himself as a mentor to the founders, he set about learning what a Startup pitch was all about while coaching teams towards Demo Day.
As he worked with the Startup teams and analysed numerous successful pitches, David found there were certain recurring elements in the process of developing the pitch storyline, and created The Pitch Canvas©.
Later he created a complete methodology for building a pitch, called Open-3-Close©. This methodology forms the backbone of David’s interactive and hands-on workshops.
“I’m passionate about helping people shine, and I’m fascinated with the impact the ability to pitch and present has on people’s careers and lives. Being a Pitch Coach brings together my passions, and I’m so happy to have found a role that enables me to have impact on entrepreneurs.”
