What You Do In 30 Seconds

By Neely Myers, Membership Director
The recent first meeting of Chamber Leads Group 1 brought the use of the “elevator speech” to mind for me, and I thought this would be a great idea for a refresher course on compelling introduction when networking. Imagine that you were to meet a potentially important contact for the first time in an elevator at a conference and he/she asks you, "What do you do?" You have no more than 30 seconds - perhaps just 10-15 seconds - between floors to explain, and to make such an impressive impact that the person asks for your contact details. Enter the elevator speech.
