BizTools Workshop: Ditch the Pitch (Part 1)
July 30 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Ditch the Pitch: An interactive personal growth workshop to help you make an impactful first impression with your introduction.
Either your business has just launched and you’re excited to get out there and start promoting it or your business has been around a for years. Regardless, you still get nervous when someone asks you “what do you do?” You get even more nervous when you have to stand up even for a few seconds and introduce yourself and your business.
Very few can answer effortlessly. There should be simplicity in your answer so that people completely get it. In your head it’s clear but when you open your mouth to speak you can’t find the words. It’s obvious that things have gone south when the person with whom you are speaking has a glazed over look in their eyes. You can almost see the grocery list they are creating in their head. You have just bored them or worse, confused them. Either way, the moment is lost, and opportunity has left the building.
This workshop, facilitated by Marcia Futterman Brodie, will have you telling your story in sixty seconds or less and will help you gain confidence in doing so. Your new introduction will have you sharing your personal brand with ease. After this workshop, you will be able to answer the question about what you do and your message will have people wanting to know more and utilize your product or services.
