Friends Who Are Going
Event description


You are very welcome to join our networking workshop for Entrepreneurs and Founders in The Maldron Hotel on Wednesday 4th of October at 7.00pm.

This is an interactive workshop where you will work in small groups with materials provided by John Keating, professional Business Storytelling Coach. By the end of the workshop, you are going to have the structure of your perfect pitch and you will be able to present your business idea professionally. Not only, but also, you will get an opportunity to present it in front of other attendees, receive feedback and start to build confidence in your offer.

Professional presentation and introduction of your business idea during networking event goes a long way. You also need to be able to pitch in front of investors, at an event meeting or even to a random person on the street. It’s one of the keys to improve your business presence and get new customers. We meet our potential clients everywhere and possessing perfect communication skills goes a long way.

Additionally, as a final part of our event you will have a chance to network with other attendees in the hotel’s bar. It will be great chance to meet similar-minded people, learn from each other’s experiences and widen your business network.


Are you:

  • An entrepreneur who is looking to improve your business and get new customers?

  • A local business owner?

  • Founder of a new start up?

  • An online Entrepreneur?

  • A freelancer who wants to present your services better?

  • Someone who is seriously thinking about running your own business and wants to improve your business network?

Yes? Then this workshop can significantly change your business life.


After attending the workshop you will be able to:

  • Prepare your business pitch according to the 8 Step Guide

  • Introduce your business idea in a professional manner

  • Present your business pitch in front of investors

  • Know the type of body language to use to make the maximum impact

  • Feel comfortable to introduce your business during a networking event

  • Get more out of networking events

  • Improve your customer base


As a highly-successful coach, John Keating has created an 8-step process that can build your successful business introduction. During this interactive workshop you will work in small groups and walk through all those steps. At the end you will be able to prepare the whole structure of your pitch.

Successful entrepreneurs are not better looking, they haven’t come from wealthy families and they are not privately educated. They are not luckier, rather they have stuck to a set of principles and skills that can be understood and mastered by anyone.

Join us as John breaks down the techniques he teaches his clients to help them achieve the outcomes they are looking for.
