DEC Presents: The Elevator Pitch:Communicating Potential Quickly and Effectively






DEC Presents:  The Elevator Pitch:  Communicating Potential Quickly and Effectively

Please join us at the DEC on Thursday, April 11th from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. to learn how to effectively communicate your company with a well developed "elevator speech."


Effectively communicating your company to potential customers, employees, partners and investors in a quick manner is key to starting good relationships.  This hands-on workshop will help you develop, practice and refine your "elevator pitch."  You will leave prepared to concisely communicate and attract interest in your company.

You will learn:

  • The basic principles of pitching in a short amount of time
  • Why these principles transfer to longer pitches and ongoing discussions
  • Who the various audiences for your pitch are and how to communicate with them
  • What to do before, during and after an opportunity to pitch you company
  • When "elevator pitching" is beneficial

With this hands-on workshop you will have the opportunity to pitch your idea and company several times in front of our attendees.  Feedback will be designed to help you make enhancements and implement improvements to your pitch throughout the workshop.

    Rick and Greg knocked it out of the park with this one. It was a lot of fun and we learned meaningful information to help our business.

    Would love to come but can't leave work, wish the meetup events can be broadcast on the web so there is much better chance to attend. Maybe someday. Thanks.

    I am so sorry--this was important to me--I had to get a project out that took more time than anticipated. I don't like no shows to my events--I hate to do that to others. I bet it was great!
