Elevator pitching – How to prepare your career for the future of work.
First Impressions are the key of success. In most encounters, you only have 30 seconds to show, a few minutes to impress, and a day to respond. Therefore, It is the best to prepare an impressive elevator pitch.
An elevator pitch is the most minimalist interpretation of the products or services that a company or individual offers. The term “elevator pitch” comes from the reality that you may only have an elevator ride to the next floor to introduce yourself and your ideas and to make an impact on investors or prospects. The elevator pitch is the heart of all of your messaging and conversations about you or your brand.
