Did you know that when you interview for jobs, internships, and scholarships you’re actually delivering your personal pitch? Whether you are an entrepreneur trying to build credibility with investors or a current or former student seeking employment, your ability to concisely convey your message will determine if you sink or swim.

The McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship has invited Chris Westfall to Aggieland for the upcoming McFerrin Methods on March 3. Chris Westfall is a nationally acclaimed author, keynote speaker, business consultant, and pitch coach who is sought out by companies around the world for his knowledge and expertise.
