The NEW Elevator Pitch: Stop Pitching and Start Connecting!

What’s the Story?

Why just give a speech…  When you can deliver a message?

April’s speaker Chris Westfall, the national elevator pitch champion, will explain how getting clear on your story is the first step to creating connections that matter.  Master the New Elevator Pitch and you will experience:
  • Greater clarity around your personal story
  • Authentic communication: being true to yourself and your listener
  • The art of influence and persuasion
  • How to get others enrolled in your ideas

When you make a real connection, you can make a real difference! That’s the power of The NEW Elevator Pitch.     See a quick video preview… (Please join our LinkedIn Group and comment on the discussions.)
