Pitching Turned Into Consultation By Roger Kerk

Branding trainer, consultant and author Roger Kerk hosted the third and last meetup in his Pitch A Brand with Roger Kerk series on 13th November 2013 (Wednesday).

The event attracted 10 business and working people from different industries. Everyone took turn to talk about his or her business or brand story for 3 minutes.

As usual, Roger gave feedback on each presenter’s business and presentation. Being straight-talking, he had no reservation in teaching and coaching us to be better presenter, business and brand owner.

In particular, Roger spent a good chunk of nearly half an hour talking about Pitch ‘n’ Win alone. Being an early supporter and adviser to the founder Ricky Soo, he gave candid comments and criticisms on Pitch ‘n’ Win, as well as BookPeckers also founded by Ricky.

Pitch winners were Susan Guan and Jerome Lee. They gave interesting pitches about their therapy spa and cultural show businesses respectively. However, Roger chose not to proceed to the next stage for the winners to elaborate and ended the gathering on time.

After the event, one presenter and pitch winner in a previous meetup Eric Lim spent one sleepless night to come up with an emotional story for his brand. In the story, he tells how he has “dated” 200 women in 2 years! Roger has impacted everyone indeed.

Cynthia Chiam from Success Factory and Tracy Poon from Hong Kong deserved to be winners with their winning pitch on their business and ideas presented.

Business networking went on until the restaurant was closed at 10pm. The event has forged some friendship and partnership. Some participants went on to work together in their business and one went on to organize own Pitch ‘n’ Win event later.
