“You only get one chance to make a good first impression.” An elevator pitch can help you make the most of every first impression, while making networking situations easier and more productive.
Do you ever feel a little tongue-tied when telling others what you do, or just uncomfortable talking about yourself? An elevator pitch gives you a ready-to-go introduction, which can take a lot of the stress out of networking. Plus, when you have a well-practiced elevator pitch, you may present yourself as more confident and self-assured, making others more willing trust you and consider you a worthwhile acquaintance.
A powerful elevator pitch includes your leadership brand. A leadership brand conveys your identity and distinctiveness as a leader. It communicates the value you offer.
At the end of this webinar workshop, you will be able to:
1. Explain the purpose of an elevator pitch
2. Recognize a “good” elevator pitch
3. Construct your leadership brand statement (aka unique selling proposition)
4. Write and deliver your pitch
