Presentation Abstract:  (worth 1 PDU – Talent Triangle – Leadership)

Presentation Abstract:
You know how you’re a project manager and maybe you do something super technical or complicated? Or you feel anxious when you have to tell people what you do. You wish you just had simple,clear, truthful words to say that would help you connect better with potential clients, partners, or inside your own organization. 
Having a simple, powerful, and compelling elevator pitch that simply and clearly communicates what you do makes it easy for people to understand what you do so it’s easier to do business. 

What participants/attendees will learn? 
The participants will learn:
- What a brand is and how it’s connected to your elevator pitch 
- What a good elevator pitch is and what it isn’t 
- How to craft yours in a super-simple way that communicates PRECISELY what you do so people say, “Wow. I need you.” 
- When you can say what you do in a way people can understand, you’ll dramatically improve your confidence about saying what you do, clearly and powerfully, your ability to stand out from all the others who do the same thing you do and your ability to attract the right clients (because they’ll understand how you help them!)
