Pitch Perfect – Learn to Pitch your Company to Primes and Government effectively

As entrepreneurs, we often feel confident and competent in many areas of our business lives, yet we struggle with nerves when it comes time to pitch, sell, or speak in public. Join Ingela of Courageous Artistry to learn how to manage anxiety using tools and tricks from psychology so we can put our best foot forward, and use our bodies and voices to help convey confidence.

Ingela Onstad, Courageous Artistry

Her coaching business, Courageous Artistry, aims to support performing artists in their quest to perform at the top of their abilities.

In addition, Ms. Onstad is a soprano who has enjoyed a varied international career in opera, concert work, and contemporary music. Operatic highlights include performances at Dresden’s Staatsoperette, Oldenburgisches Staatstheater, Landestheater Schleswig-Holstein, and the Santa Fe Opera.

Ms. Onstad’s concert work includes Mozart’s Exsultate, Jubilate, Barber’s Knoxville Summer of 1915, Handel’s Messiah, Mahler Symphony No. 4, Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5, and Haydn’s The Creation, with groups such as the New Mexico Philharmonic, Bad Reichenhaller Philharmonie, Chicago Arts Orchestra, and the Santa Fe Symphony.

A sought-after interpreter of contemporary works, she has debuted two roles in world-premiere operas (Kampe’s ANOIA and Strauss’ Los Bufones), as well as operatic roles in works by Bibalo (Fräulein Julie) and Ullman (Der Kaiser von Atlantis) and iconic works like Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire. Upcoming performances include Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the Roswell Symphony Orchestra, and Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem with the Mid-Columbia Symphony in Washington.
