It’s almost like the definition of insanity. Business people everywhere are taught that we need an “elevator speech” just as much as we need a business card, a website, and air to breathe in order to be successful. But the crazy part is NO ONE likes to give those canned elevator speeches and NO ONE likes to hear them because they’re usually full of blah, blah, blah meaningless marketing drivel and feel so contrived and just yucky. You may need a shower just thinking about it!
More importantly, evidence proves even the most well-crafted and best-delivered elevator speeches don’t work to bring in new business. Come hear national social networking expert Felicia Slattery talking on getting beyond that trite staple, the elevator speech, and achieving more effective communication with potential customers/clients.
But if you find you're free at the last minute, just come!
