Monday 25th Oct – Webinar: Having A Conversation
October 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
How To develop the perfect elevator pitch that sells you succinctly.
At Careers Springboard we encourage our members to prepare at least 2 elevator pitches for their toolkit – the 30 second (elevator version) and the 1 minute version. In addition, for initial conversation where you have gauged there is a little more time available, it is worthy of preparing a 2 minute version as well. In more informal situations of meeting, any of these can be tailored, where for example you may have been invited round to friends for drinks – don’t bore the pants off this potential contact, but inspire them with your value.! Always make it relevant, succinct, quantifiable….. and then reciprocate – What do you do..?
Then, actively listening to their response is very important, to identify how their ‘value added’ could potentially be of benefit to you and vice-versa.
The uniqueness that Stephen brings to the party is the clarity, factual and succinct delivery of his pitch, interspersed with appropriate pauses, which, as a total package creates significant IMPACT for his listener (buyer) or audience.
In preparation of your own elevator pitch, you already know who you are, then adding to that you should include what you do (your role, position, organisation, perspective of scale), and then what you do better (reflects your skills, experience and the value added part), in other words – the key attributes that make you stand out and will give you the edge over your competition.
We look forward to welcoming you on Monday evening to hear Stephen Ostercamp speak about the elevator pitch.
