When you’re at a pitch event, there are usually more pitchers than just you. A typical pitch event has dozens of pitchers who’re pitching their company, so you really need to stand out.

If you have the ability to pick whether you will be pitching early or late in the evening, I always recommend you to go late. Although it might be tempting to be the last one to pitch (to get it over with), it’s usually the last pitch which gets remembered best. If it’s not possible to be the last pitcher, then I advise you to be the first one.

If you’re not able to pick the first/last spot, don’t worry. Make sure you have a great pitch and you’ll be just fine! Check out the Ultimate Pitch Guide.
