Elevator pitch - the science of concise communication


To provide tools to help you deliver your message effectively when you have just two minutes with someone important.






Have you ever felt that you couldn’t get your story across in a short conversation? Or perhaps that you didn’t make a memorable impression in a short meeting or couldn’t convince your listener to agree to your proposal?

In our helter skelter society you will have less and less time to tell your story, so you need to be prepared. An elevator pitch is a communication tool that will help you engage your listener and get your point across effectively and efficiently.

This practical and interactive 4-hour course will help you to enhance your communication skills. It includes individual feedback to identify weak points and encourages the participants to stand up and make their point in a way that works.
