In this 3 ½ minutes quick video, you’ll learn some simple steps on creating your own elevator speech that will help you be memorable the next time someone asks what you do.
Picture this scenario…you get onto an elevator and who jumps in as the doors are closing? Tony Robbins!
In his deep raspy voice he says “Hi, I’m Tony” and offers to shake your hand. Of course, you shake his hand and respond by saying your name.
Then it comes… he asks, “what do you do?” and you have until the elevator reaches the 5th floor to tell him.
- you can’t be rushed
- you have to sound confident
- you need to be concise
Can you do it?
Your elevator speech is one of the best ways to make a great impression. It’s a powerful tool that can be used when you’re meeting someone for the first time in person, in a class or on a Zoom call.
It’s a one-sentence pitch that gives “who you’re speaking to” aka your audience a glimpse of what you bring to the table. It’s a short summary of your skills and abilities in one concise sentence.
Now an elevator speech is a bit of a misnomer since it doesn’t have to be in an elevator. It’s the idea of taking who you’re speaking to on a quick tour of what you do in the time it takes for the elevator to reach the top floor.
So give this a try and comment below with your rewrite. Bonus points if you also write an elevator introduction about yourself. All right so that’s it for today. I really look forward to reading what you’ve got and until next time stay inspired.
Until next time, Stay Inspired.
