Australian Defence Export Office launches Pitch Training Program

In partnership with Marketing Entourage, the Australian Defence Export Office (ADEO) has developed a five week online pitch training course to support Australian defence industry companies looking to better promote their capabilities. The program is specifically designed to improve the chances of export success for Australian defence industry companies engaging with foreign military and supply chain companies such as international primes. The training is delivered through a series of webinars, online modules and one-to-one pitch practice sessions. Companies will be provided with the opportunity to have their pitch reviewed by people in highly experienced defence and prime acquisition.

The online pitch training course is fully subsidised by the ADEO for Australian defence industry companies. The ADEO is endeavouring to help all companies in the Australian defence industry, although companies who have recently participated in an industry delegation with Team Defence Australia will receive priority for the first cohorts. There will be several cohorts across the financial year, commencing 7 September 2020, with around 20-30 companies in each. It is anticipated that it will take around 2-4 hours per week to complete the course, and businesses can have as many people as they see fit complete it together under one registration.
