Monday, Nov 14, 2011, 1:00-3:00PM, WPI Campus Center, Odeum Room. Elevator Pitch Workshop Developing an artful yet influential Elevator Pitch is something everyone should be able to do. From trying to argue a point in a heated debate to trying to sell a new business or product idea to an investor, Elevator Pitches are valuable tools for effective communication in the art of persuasion - often used at a networking event. You will learn about the pitch, start writing one, present it, and rework it until it is perfect. Time is an important factor in keeping your audience engaged. How much time you have to communicate is not always open-ended. You may only have a fleeting moment to convey the essence of your thoughts. What can you say in one minute? Will you impress the listener? Will you be prepared to make an impression when you have one of those rare opportunities? It can be a challenge -- and this workshop will prepare you for those opportunities by having attendees think about writing an Elevator Pitch. This two-hour workshop is open to to the public.
