DETAILS: Do you already have your 30-second elevator speech? If you don’t – or even if you do and want to make sure it works as you intend it to – make sure you attend our June meeting on Thursday, June 13.

An elevator speech—also called an elevator pitch or elevator statement—is a short description of an idea, product, service, company, or yourself (as a professional) that explains it in a clear, quick, and easily understandable way. It’s how you share your expertise and credentials with people who don’t know what you do… and avoid losing their attention!

Seasoned business owner, data visualization expert, and Toastmaster President Terri Larsen, Ph.D., will help all attendees craft an elevator speech for their business that will magnetically attract their ideal clients.

We’ll provide you with a one-page worksheet outlining guidelines (such as what benefits you’ll provide to your audience) to help you come up with the right elevator speech for you.
