Elevator Pitch: 2-Minute Business Presentation – followed by AGM
Jasmina Sazdovska, PhD – Head of Department of Languages, International Business School, Budapest
The workshop aims to provide participants with the skills to teach students how to prepare for and perform elevator pitches with a combination of online and course book materials. An additional goal is to give free-lance teachers and trainers guidance on how to perfect their own elevator pitches when approaching possible clients. The workshop follows the usual three-stage teaching process of presentation, practice and performance.
The first part of the workshop is intended to define the genre of elevator pitches, to provide participants with both positive and negative examples of these presentations and to outline their basic structure, based on the 5 Ps: Pain, Premise, People, Proof, Purpose.
The practice section of the workshop is based around an activity where participants are asked to identify and put in order the 5 Ps from three different elevator pitches.
In the final part of the workshop participants will receive tips on how to prepare for performing elevator pitches. Finally, the workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to develop and perform their own elevator pitches which they can use when approaching prospective clients.
