Many business owners struggle to articulate themselves confidently and concisely — leaving the listener unsure what exactly they do. And likely, missing out one sales.
The truth is, up to 80 percent of sales is storytelling, and a well-crafted elevator pitch can open the door to a valuable connection, partnership or referral.
"Storytelling for Business: Crafting Your  Elevator Pitch" will lead attendees through five questions every owner should be able to answer about their business, plus a practical, step-by-step approach to craft an elevator pitch they can start using today.
Participants will walk away feeling confident in how to answer the question, “So, what do you do?" Plus, they'll be equipped to use networking to open the door to sales.
