How do you answer the question, “What do you do?” Everyone, especially leaders, needs a great introduction. Most people have dozens of opportunities each month to introduce themselves, and the so-called “elevator speech” is the first step in building relationships and forming alliances and collaborations — elements that any leader needs to succeed.

Join WCL and public speaking coach Gigi Rosenberg to learn how to write and deliver your outstanding 60-second introduction. Come prepared to practice and learn how a good elevator speech can help you build and connect with your audience. Gigi will walk attendees through a step-by-step process to create and finesse a powerful personal elevator speech.

You’ll leave this interactive workshop with a workable speech and practical tips for delivering it with presence. You’ll learn how to:

  • Hone your message.
  • Deliver it with authenticity.
  • Practice it wherever you go.
