The Pitch Training Program is specifically designed to improve the chances of export success for Australian defence industry businesses engaging with foreign military and seeking opportunities in international supply chains.

The training will be delivered through a series of webinars, online modules and one-to-one pitch practice sessions. Businesses will have access to one-on-one mentoring to help refine and perfect their pitch, including the opportunity to have their pitch reviewed by highly experienced Defence and prime acquisition personnel.

It will take around 2 to 4 hours per week to complete the course. Businesses can have multiple staff complete the course together under one registration.

The course is available to all Australian defence industry businesses and is fully subsidised by the ADEO.

There will be several cohorts across the 2020-21 financial year, commencing 7 September 2020, with around 20-30 companies in each.

About the ADEO


The ADEO was established in April 2018 as a key initiative of the 2018 Defence Export Strategy. The ADEO is the focal point for coordinating whole-of-government defence export support for the Australian defence industry, to ensure it can meet Australia’s defence capability needs now and into the future.

How do I get involved?


Australian defence industry businesses are encouraged to register their interest to join a cohort.

Limited spaces are available on each cohort, and the ADEO will prioritise businesses who have recently participated in an industry delegation with Team Defence Australia.
