For the Pitch Perfect session, we are welcoming Emma Zangs, a choreographer and communication coach who has extensively worked with accelerators helping start-ups to deliver impactful pitches. Her choreography background brings a fresh perspective to the way people run pitches and presentations. She will be sharing how to speak truthfully and inspire the audience, how to be ready to handle any situation and overcome your speaking fear, how to achieve rock-solid confidence around posture, voice, hand gestures, eye contact, clear diction and hosting (or "owning the room”) but mostly how you speak aligns with what you say.

What is Spark?

It's an incredible opportunity sponsored by Santander Universities for anyone that wants to gain valuable mentoring, expert training and up to £1,250 to test and develop an idea in a low-risk way! Join our 6-week introductory course and see if your ideas have what it takes to become a viable business.

Everyone is encouraged to be ambitious and achieve excellence.

Free food and drink will be provided. There are limited spaces so register now to secure yours.

We are delighted that this session will be facilitated by Ross Jordan who has real world experience with start-ups and entrepreneurship.
