Pitching can be challenging for business owners

Are you feeling like this?

But you would rather feel…

Powerful and that you capture attention when speaking.
You struggle to get buy-in for your ideas.
That your big idea is an irresistible proposition.
Pitching makes you feel… nervous/scared/sleazy/tongue-tied…
You elicit an emotional connection with your audience so they want to buy into your business.
You want to position yourself as an authority in your field but don’t know how.
That you are making the most of every opportunity that comes your way.
You’re never sure when it’s the right moment to bring up your business.
Confident that your audience will walk away knowing exactly what you do and what your ask is.
You struggle to be heard in what can feel like a boys club.
That there is a supportive community behind you.

You’re not alone…

Our tried and tested method works

Here's what other women who have taken the course have to say.

“Boy did it hit the spot with Carrie's first two videos alone! Summing up what we do at The Cohive Collective has always been difficult - as I'm sure most business-owning women feel the same - we encompass so many amazing offerings it's hard to put them into a concise & captivating pitch. I am so excited to be part of this course and can't wait to meet up for our zoom session later this week.”

Josephine Borovac

Founder of Cohive Collective

“I do suffer from imposter syndrome and pitching is something I really need to get much more comfortable about. Talking about my business/ solution is great when I can do it fluidly. I really think Carrie did a great job, especially for new founders who haven't had any exposure to pitches, decks etc.”


I recently had the pleasure of joining @mums.and.co for the ‘Confident Pitching for Business Women’ course and absolutely loved the course content and support from all involved. The group zoom classes where so convenient, allowing me to tune in from home, and work on the content at my own pace. Truth be told, I’ve had a challenging few months with Jeanie’s sleep, so I’m still getting through some of it. But the best thing about the course was that most of the women were mums and understand the juggle of life. There was no judgement and nothing but support, with helpful advise from women from all types of business, which is truly priceless. I couldn’t recommend this platform more for any women wanting to upskill their business.

Let me introduce myself

Hi, I’m Carrie, Co-Founder of Mums & Co.
Mums & Co launched when I had a toddler and was seven months pregnant with my second son. So I know a thing or two about the juggle.

To some it may seem crazy to take on such a massive challenge when my life was about to be turned upside down. To others―I’m talking about mums like us―it makes perfect sense. Because when that idea that lights you up comes along - it’s impossible to let it go.

So how do you get other people on board and truly understand your idea? It's all in the art of the pitch and that pitch can take place anywhere and at any time - at the school gate, a friends bbq or on a pitch competition stage.

A confidence gap exists for women, who tend to undervalue themselves. In a pitch environment this leads to underselling and coming off to listeners as ‘less sure of themselves’. I frequently hear women express that they don’t feel they deserve their job and are “imposters” who could be found out at any moment. 

At Mums & Co we think this can be improved for women like you. So we’ve created the Confident Pitching For Business Women course - to give all women a safe space to connect, grow and learn together.

I hope to see you there!
