Walk The Plank:
Pitch Training Workshop

As a sales professional in the field, a marketer delivering a new strategy, or a team member sharing a new idea—your pitch means everything in your business.

Your company has set sail with an idea and purpose you believe in. You’re ready to walk the plank and take the plunge into the unknown sea below. How you swim in those shark infested waters depends on your ability to connect with your audience in a meaningful way.

Are you telling your story with a simple, evocative and compelling message? Or are your hands bound by conventional wisdom telling you to play it safe?

Aye matey, we have good news. Walk the Plank is a one-of-a-kind team workshop designed to deliver all the tools for your team to confidently swim in open waters. We’ve coached leaders of Fortune 500 companies, TED speakers, Shark Tank contestants, Northwestern University Entrepreneurship and Innovation students and many others using these very methods. They work for them. They’ll work for your group too.

Words From Our Raving Fans:

"Brian and SquarePlanet has been the catalyst that has made Technori Pitch one of the top start-up presentation events in the country. He has elevated our quality to a level that I don’t think any other coach could have in Chicago."
Seth Kravitz
CEO / Technori
“So get this. I had this idea for a new way to use light and energy, right? I think I’m on cruise control to the promised land. Then I come to one of SquarePlanet’s Walk the Plank workshops and like the flick of a flint, my life changes. I had it all wrong. Had it not been for these guys, my idea probably would have gone nowhere. In fact, I’d probably be living on the streets.”
Thomas Edison
Inventor + Entrepreneur
“I can’t say enough about how extraordinary this workshop is. Over the past week I have been working on better connection with existing clients and prospective clients along with everyone in-between. It can be a challenge breaking old habits but I'm on a mission to implement the SquarePlanet methodology!”
Andy Marsh
"Our session was truly life changing. You guys are so stupid good at what you do!"
