Elevator pitches are created to sell your idea, business, product or service in 30 seconds or less (the time it takes to go from the first floor to the top of the building in an elevator). A great pitch has the power to help anyone...from a University employee to a new entrepreneur to a team working in a high-growth firm.

It’s important to develop and practice an effective pitch, complete with an awesome "Wow Factor," so you are ready to use it under fire (pretend you just stepped onto an elevator with Warren Buffett or Bill Gates)!

This interactive webinar will walk people through the process of creating an Elevator Pitch or Quick Pitch for their idea, business, product, service or organization. An effective pitch is a great way to make a very positive and lasting first impression! Join us for this webinar, prepare your pitch and take advantage of the "Wow Factor!"
