Your Elevator Pitch

Event Description

Live Roundtable Discussion

The “elevator speech” is a short speech explaining what kind of work you do, in the time it takes an elevator to go from floor to floor, about 30 seconds.  When does an elevator speech work?  When doesn’t it work?  What makes an elevator speech effective?  Does this model work anymore? 

This will be a roundtable discussion.  So come prepared to share your ideas and questions, and plan to stay on-screen.
