Casting Your Pitch Team

“We only want those who will work on the business to be in the room.” Everyone who’s ever pitched any business has heard this from the client. And, rightly so.

Ultimately, the client wants to be sure there’s no bait and switch where the agency brings their rocks stars, but then provides a team of duds when it’s time to begin working on the business.
