Stats show that women in Britain effectively work for free from 10 November until the end of the year due to the disparity in earnings with their male colleagues.
With the gender pay gap not closing fast enough and with ever more women seeing the light and striking out on their own as entrepreneurs, it’s important that we know how to be confident about our worth and abilities and ask for what we deserve. Step in Coach Lyds, a successful Business Success Coach who is passionate about helping women to have more impact and confidence in asking for what they want. To this end, she recently organised and hosted a masterclass on how to ‘Pitch 2 Perfect’ and get what you want.
Coach Lyds is rightly proud of her track record of coaching thousands of men and women, helping them transition into new roles, guiding them to getting noticed, promoted and ultimately, paid more.
In addition to Coach Lyds, the Pitch 2 Perfect event roster included special guests Melinda Rogers (The Telegraph), Raspreet Sagoo (Founder of Divine Sacred Soul) and Tala Kayali (Founder of TKSmartNutrition) who were the perfect examples for the room full of entrepreneurs, business owners and career professionals who wanted to become more visible, have more impact in business and in their careers.

To Pitch Perfect, remember planning is essential, firstly research your audience, who are they, what improvements or expertise do they require, then tailor your message to their specific needs, wants and desires. There is no point boring the hinds socks off a donkey and disrespecting your audience or prospect with lack of research.
Also, my top five Ps to Pitch Perfect are; Practice your message, be Precise in your communications, bring your Personality to the room, engage with real Presence and hold your space, and most of all keep it Professional at all times.
