Cathy Severson gave us a review of the purpose of and what should be included in an “Elevator Speech”. The purpose of an “elevator speech” is to peak the other person’s interest so that they ask you for more contact information.
The components of an Elevator Speech are:
• Problems I solve for your customers
• Keeping the other person’s interest
• Making a connection to other person’s business
