When Callum Murray, Founder and CEO set up Amiqus, one of the first steps on his entrepreneurial journey was taking part in EIE16 where he came to my Presentation Skills workshop to work on his elevator pitch for the main event.
In Callum’s words:
“Having covered the foundations of pitching and presentation skills with Maryanne during EIE and the Royal Society of Edinburgh Enterprise fellowship programme, I asked her to help structure our content and prepare for the Scottish Edge competition last year, where we won £75k.
For EIE ’17, I was selected to deliver an extended pitch with Q&A. We worked with Maryanne during the training and invested additional time and effort to refine our content and delivery. We won both pitch of the day and the audience vote award.
Time spent with Maryanne is an investment for our business, adds clear value and it’s been instrumental in our ongoing success.”
Amiqus have now invested in giving their team access to The Agile Speaker eLearning programme.
