BBC Friday 10 August 2018 – Classic BBC Elevator Speech Workshop

This Friday BBC, we’ll go classic with an Elevator Speech [ES] workshop. What makes not just a good [ES], but an amazing [ES]? We’ll roundtable what constitutes a good [ES], what are the key elements to include in your [ES] — and conversely what should not be in your [ES]?

At BBC, we’ve often distinguished between a typical [ES], at 30 seconds tops, and an Extended Elevator Speech [eES], between one and two minutes (but no longer than that — heaven forbid!). The [eES] tends to flesh out that hook/tag line and vision statement that makes your [ES] shine, and it can also allow for a broader and more detailed development of your business’s products/services, typical clientele, and a little of your business philosophy. 

Workshop Goals: 1) Go around the table, hear each one’s [ES], then drawing from what you hear from each other, discuss the key elements of what goes into a really great [ES]. 2) As time permits, distinguish out what could go into a longer [eES], and how to avoid conflating the two — er, how to avoid spinning your [ES] into an [eES].

Special thanks to hosts Steve Kersten, bbc acting chair, and Bill Ruddick, bbc thinkologist, who will be graciously moderating and skillfully navigating this exciting classic BBC session. Beauty, eh [BE].

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise!
