Program

Introducing Yourself, Elevator or Not

We’ve all heard of the Elevator Pitch, the Gold Standard of introducing oneself in a business setting.  Many “how-to” articles and presentations have been offered.
Yet for most people, introducing oneself causes anxiety.  Indeed, first impressions are lasting ones, so anxiety is natural.
To help you become much more comfortable introducing yourself, our WIND North program on the 26th will focus on:
– crafting a Clear, Concise and Compelling 30-second pitch which can and should be modified to best suit your audience
– using nonverbals to create more attention and memorability
– carrying conversations beyond the introductions
After attendees have written a draft or modified an existing one, we’ll break into small groups where each person will deliver his/her pitch and receive feedback from the group.  Feedback forms will be provided so no information will be lost.
If there’s time, second chances will be possible.
Come join us at WIND North on the 26th and get more confident at this most important networking task. Bring your existing Elevator Pitch, if you have one, and polish it.
