What Past Attendees Are Saying About Pitch Lab 

"Who would have thought that stand-up comedy and pitching share so much in common? Pitch Lab delivers a slew of invaluable tips and tricks to improve your public speaking ability in a fun (and funny!) way." - Kevin Cook, Amazon 

"Pitch Lab was so awesome! Not sure if I learned or laughed more. We all know a great presenter when we see one, but I never analyzed what makes them great. While what you say is important, it's all of the other details of presenting that play a crucial role in turning a good speaker into a truly captivating presenter." - Ashley Brafford, More Communications Groupo 

"The whole Pitch Lab concept allows you to not worry about the itch topic and focus on getting better as a presenter. The insights from the comedian, improv expert and public speaking expert were very useful, and I had a lot of fun." - Patrick Murphy, Pandora
