Event Details


When I am trying to tell someone about my venture, how do I decide what to leave in and what to leave out? How can I generate interest without creating boredom? What is the objective of my first pitch?


After participating in this training, you will be able to deliver an elevator pitch and observe when it is the right length, when it is delivered to the right target, and when to stop talking.


Printed handouts, resource lists (provided), and willingness to engage in dialogue and ask questions.

Time required

Two hours.


At the completion of the session, I will ask you to fill out an evaluation questionnaire to let me know how I can better serve you in the future.

After the session, I will be available for one-to-one conversations for the balance of the afternoon.
