I am excited to be presenting again at the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce (MCCC). The team there is the best! I also partner with them on the Veterans Institute for Procurement (VIP) where I present my Big 3 Program for VIP Start – Elevator Pitch, Capabilities Statement, and Capabilities Presentation.

This upcoming program is all about the elevator pitch. I consider the elevator pitch one of the MOST important elements in your brand story. Why? Because it sets the tone for building relationships. Give a good answer and people are impressed. Otherwise, your conversation partner is typically playing a game of 20 Questions until he or she is able to figure out what you do. It also unifies your brand promise, which helps with recruiting, sales, and building culture. I included several articles on the elevator pitch at the bottom.
