The 21st century is all about speed. Every individual wants quick outcomes. There are cabs that arrive in a minute and coffee that is on the counter the second you place the order. No one has the time and patience to wait. So, what when a potential employer, business partner or even a life partner is in front of you? How do you deliver a strong speech that lingers after it is over? What do you say and what do you omit? All these aspects, along with others, need to be meticulously decided.
Hello Elevator Pitch!
Elevator pitch, or more commonly referred to as elevator speech, is a concise, sharp, introduction about yourself, or an idea in the professional playground. The catch, however, is that the message needs to be conveyed in the duration of an elevator ride. Essentially, the pitch is a 30 to 45 second description about yourself or the product you sell.
