4 Steps
1. YOUR NAME AND YOUR COMPANY'S NAME
"The 'Who'. The name of your company. Just the name. Not the tagline. Taglines have their place and it’s not in your 30 second pitch."

ANSWER: Erik Fortin, The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics


2. WHAT IS YOUR JOB TITLE? 
"The 'What'. What products or services does you company provide? Keep focused. You cannot be all things to all people."

ANSWER: Systems Analyst


3. WHY ARE YOU HERE? 
"The 'What’s in it for me?' or your USP (unique selling proposition). What sets you apart from your competition? For example: Can you help me make more money? Do you sell a product I need for less cost? Do you solve a specific problem? Describe yourself in terms of the benefits you provide “me”, your prospective client."

ANSWER: Looking for testing tips, as well as building my skill level in the networking field




4. What is your favorite Ice Cream? Really. I gotta know! 

ANSWER: Fish Food

Time to break the ice. Here's a way to do that. 

Your 30 – 60 second pitch

We are all here for a reason. What's your reason? This exercise will help you get what you need from this group.

To establish your wants and needs, I've put this exercise together. Please complete it before you come. I'm going to ask you to share this with the group either in front of everyone or in small groups, depending how many people come. You DO NOT have to do this. No worries. 

You'll see " " marks around  the questions. That's because I didn't write the questions, someone else did; I'm quoting them. They do not wish to be identified, so I'm leaving their citation out  but crediting their work by using quotes.
Thanks!
