On Thursday, October 28th, BAIA Best Practices Competition winners came back to John Cabot to present the pitch they created at the end of September with Prof. Pulino’s class. After a very interactive session, full of questions and constructive feedback from students, the audience agreed that Mirko Turchetti, representative of SGL ReLogistics, had presented the best pitch.

His success, he explains, was only possible thanks to the help of Charles Tabansi and Marco Pecchio, the two JCU students that assisted Mirko in the creation and delivery of the pitch. In fact, over the course of October, Charles and Marco visited Mirko at his office twice a week to teach him the dos and don’ts of the elevator pitch delivery. Every session they would focus on something different, from nonverbal communication to methods to stay focused. Mirko explained that both students were extremely prepared and gave him a professional help to him and the business.

Mirko suggests any other startup representative to take advantage of this unique opportunity. The ability to present an elevator pitch is very important, especially in the first stages of a company. This experience, did not only help him improve his English, but also helped him pinpoint the core values of his business.
