My journey to this point has not been straightforward.
I’m Andrew Tollinton
One day I decided to test my theory and I persuaded my boss to allow me to pitch for new business in my spare time. Working weekends and evenings I soon secured a six-figure deal and my life in pitching began.

When I was pitching as part of a large organisation I struggled to understand why pitches failed or succeeded, there were just too many variables. However, when I was pitching our software platform all the variables were under my control: I was responsible for the marketing, price, product and pitch.

Today you’ll find me pitching my software solution as well as a renewable, clean energy project. I’m coach to the 2018 national public speaking champion and I mentor a wide range of people, helping them pitch everything from artificial intelligence to hedge funds.
