Identify Your Leadership Brand and Create Your Elevator Pitch – Learn How to Present Yourself Confidently and Make Others More Willing to Trust you

“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
