sad womanDoes developing your Pitch take a back seat? Do you “wing” your pitch? Are you showing up like a scattered entrepreneur?

The only way to develop a stellar Pitch and deliver with calm confidence is to carve out the time and get assistance.

We not only want to make this easy for you, but we want you to develop a Pitch that is as worthy as your idea. We want to remove as many obstacles as possible and increase the probability of your success.

It pains us all when a poor presentation prevents a great idea from taking flight…





That’s why we are offering

BrianVierraOne of the key differentiating factors of the Bend Venture Conference is the quality of the pitches that are delivered by the finalists. Diane has been the secret sauce behind making sure these pitches are the best they can be.

green-question-mark-2You may ask, “What if I’m not ready?” There are 2 reasons why everyone is ALWAYS ready to develop their Pitch.

1. Developing a Pitch is one of the quickest ways to shine the light on gaps of information. You’ll find out exactly what those gaps are so you can streamline your efforts as you fill in those gaps.
2. People will leave with systems in place that can be used over and over again. These workshops will leave people with a solid foundation to build on.


Peak Performance Expert Diane Allen

Founders are frustrated with lack of time to develop a Pitch. Investors are frustrated with lack of clarity in Pitches. Brian Vierra has witnessed great ideas fall by the wayside due to poor presentation.

As a Pitch Coach, I’ve devised this program to make sure that Founders are fully supported to develop their Pitch, so that Investors get the information they need, and so that no great idea gets left behind.

Thank you so much Diane for preparing me to answer the Q. & A. at the Bend Venture Conference. Everyone told me I did great. I don’t think I could have been so confident going into that without the work I did with you. The world is my oyster! A. P.

I went from an incredibly embarrassing public speaking fail in front of an audience of 100 to 100% conversion rates pitching to bankers and investors. Diane turned me around in 10 short hours! M. K.

I have repeatedly used a story Diane & I worked on for my winning pitch at the Bend Venture Conference. Each time I use that story, it opens up more doors of opportunity! A.C.
