15-minute guide to crafting your elevator pitch

by The Adecco Group

The aptly named “elevator speech” or elevator pitch” is a concise, compelling personal introduction that can be communicated in the time it takes to ride an elevator. You use your brief, persuasive speech to spark interest in a project, idea, or product – or in yourself. It is a great way to answer questions about who you are, what you do and what you are passionate about. A good elevator speech should last no longer than a short elevator ride of 20 to 30 seconds.
