Abstract

This pitch research letter (PRL) applies the pitching template developed by Faff (2015) to an academic project on boardroom gender diversity and default risk. The pitching template helped the pitcher to identify the core elements that form the framework of the research project. The PRL encloses a brief background about the pitcher and pitch, followed by a brief commentary on the pitch and personal reflections of the pitcher on the pitch exercise itself.

Keywords: Pitching research, Pitching template, novice researchers, Women on boards, Default risk, Information asymmetry; Corporate governance
