Would YOU Do Business With YOU?! The refined Elevator Pitch

with Glenn Rudin

You have 30 seconds (or less) to make a positive impression on potential customers, fellow networkers, clients, etc. Are you putting your best foot forward?

Before you even begin speaking, you are already being sized up, sliced, diced and dissected by your audience. If your entire message (Physical Appearance, Elevator Pitch, Business Card, etc.) isn’t clearly understood we won’t know how to interact with you or refer business to you.

If you’ve ever wondered about how to create and deliver an outstanding Elevator Pitch then this program is one you should not miss.

Glenn Rudin, Sales and Marketing Consultant will guide you through the steps of self-assessment with his 30 minute, multi-media presentation which will focus primarily on the Elevator Pitch due to time constraints.
