This event will provide you with the information, resources, and support to develop your own powerful personal pitch and provide time to practice your personal pitch in a speed networking session with Tech Gives Back volunteers.

This is a fun and informal session designed to build confidence in selling your talents and networking.

About the Event: The event will kick off with a 20-minute discussion about the “Perfect Personal Pitch,” designed to help attendees create or refine their personal pitch.
