The 30-second Shark Tank
Speaker: Sheila Penelope Thorne BIO
What do you do? Can you tell me in 30 seconds or less without giving me a job title and sounding like an audio resume? A good elevator pitch will catch the attention of potential sponsors. Sponsors are able to make careers; sponsors are people who can advocate for you or connect you with career opportunities. But they can’t do that unless they know what you do. The “elevator pitch” is where you have 30 seconds to describe what you do.  How do you make the most of this?  During this workshop, we will develop elevator pitches highlighting the value you provide to connect you to the opportunities you want.
