Perfecting your Elevator Pitch

networkingA couple of months ago I posted a guide on how to network effectively. After some pretty positive feedback, I’ve now written up a factsheet on how to perfect your elevator pitch, with tips on wording and structure. I wrote up this factsheet after running an internal session on networking skills, and we all thought it would be nice to share our tips with you.

An elevator pitch can be considered as a 30-second blurb that you say to someone who you’ve never met before, that’s meant to sum up what you do, where you do it and how you could be relevant to that person. It sounds simple but it can get very tricky!

    Excellent tips & techniques on your “how to …” site. I would add only to remember to “be interested” before you attempt to be “interesting”.
