“What Do You Do?” 3 Steps To A Perfect Elevator Pitch

If you were in a room full of 100 decision-makers, could you deliver an inspiring and compelling 30-second answer to “What do you do?” to get the next meeting? Are you telling the right story? Is it opening the right doors for you? Few people are adept at delivering an I-want-to-know-more elevator pitch in response to “What do you do?”

The elevator pitch is critical to the establishment of a business relationship. People do business based on genuine and authentic connections. A compelling elevator pitch is the first step in making this connection.


This hands-on workshop will help you to:

  • Avoid the blah-blah-blah syndrome using a proven 3 step process
  • Make networking more enjoyable with a perfect elevator pitch
  • Communicate with influence while making genuine connections
  • Think on your feet faster using audience analysis techniques
  • Tell your story with more confidence, credibility, and ease

Don’t miss this unique business workshop that sharpens your natural communication abilities and helps you respond to “What do you do?” with confidence, clarity and finesse. The skills learned here, will also improve your CI data storytelling, presentation and public speaking skills.
