The 30 Second Elevator Speech

Can you talk about your product or service for 30 minutes, 3 minutes or 30 seconds?

When you meet someone in an elevator or on a business trip and they ask you what you do, can you give them a quick response?

 

Being able to give quick, succinct presentations when requested can help you to win new business or build contacts for you.

 

There are a number or places that you can use the elevator speech.

 

Meeting new people

Networking

Sales Calls

Interviewing

 

The quickest and easiest way to give the elevator speech is to mention the following

 

Who you are

What do you do?

Why you’re the best at what you do?

Your call to action

 

Here is an example of an elevator speech.

 

Carrol Jones. I’m a consultant who empowers people to speak in public. I provide people with the skills required to conquer nerves, use vocal variety and body language so they can make concise and confident presentations to clients, colleagues and friends. I understand the fear that presenters go through and can help them overcome this. If you would like to become a more confident speaker, then I am the person you need to speak to.

 

Once you have your elevator speech, remember to practice it so that it rolls of the tongue easily and professionally.

 

Keep Speaking – Carrol
