MEC Presents:The Elevator Pitch-Communicating­­ Potential Quickly and Effectively

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

Please join us at the MEC on Tuesday, August 5 from 9:45am - 10:45am to learn how to effectively communicate your company with a well developed "elevator speech." Come see some of the MEC elevator pitches and come prepared to talk up your company to win new business.


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

You will have a hands-on opportunity to pitch your idea and company several times in front of fellow entrepreneurs and business owners.  Feedback from the group will help you make enhancements and implement improvements to your pitch throughout the workshop.
