What Folks 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 “I loved the comedic examples and how famous comedians also incorporate public speaking methods in their stand-up. It was a great reminder that presentations don’t have to be boring. Even a sales pitch can be funny and engaging! This workshop taught me so many applicable things, that will help me with my next work presentation and beyond.”  – Olivia Tkach, Volume Nine     "The whole Pitch Lab concept allows you to not worry about the pitch 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
