Details: What's Your Project All About? The Elevator Speech

As project managers, we should always have the 'elevator pitch' in our back pocket, so to speak!  You never know when that opportunity to sell your project, will arise! So, be ready...

This is a one-hour construction lesson on how to present, explain, and clarify your project and enlighten others on your role in the project scheme of things.  And while the construction effort (and some practical implementation) may take a full hour, the emphasis is on having the ability to express the core tenets of belief associated with the project…in 30 seconds or less.  Using a firm “bottom-line-up-front” and “what’s-in-it-for-them” approach, you’ll discover how to win new stakeholders without sounding like a carnival barker in the process.
