A number of people have said it would be a good idea to start gathering and posting the truly memorable pitch stories. Brilliant insights, bizarre mistakes, bravura performances, brazen bullshit, bright ideas, bloody foolishness and any other that come to mind.
Mine, surprise, surprise, will be drawn from experience at Saatchi but every sector of business, politics, law, media, sport, entertainment, you name it, has great stories to be told.
What are your favourites? Let’s have them please, in about one to two hundred words. To send them you can register and comment, or email me whichever is easiest. They will be posted under the Pitches and Troughs category.
A distinguished panel, yet to be announced, will rank contributions by story interest and intrigue, rather than pitch success, giving us The 100 Best Pitch Stories-EVER!
