The Architect Pitch @Clerkenwell Design Week
Thursday 21st May, 2015 | 2.45pm-4.00pm
Pitching to clients can scare even the most confident of architects but how to give a synopsis of your practice and get complex ideas over quickly and in an engaging way is an important skill to master.
The Architect Pitch will be at the Clerkenwell Design Week on May 21st offering five architects the chance to try out their communication skills and then have their performance assessed by an expert panel.
The session is a fantastic opportunity to hone your brand message and learn those essential do’s and don’t when presenting to a live audience.
It will take place at the Farmiloe Building in the heart of Clerkenwell. Judges include Russ Edwards, Design Director of Pocket Living, Gus Zogolovitch, founder of Crowdestates and Inhabit Homes, Del Hossain, MD of the Adrem Group and David Hamilton, an architect and senior member of the Malcolm Reading Consultants team.
