In this lab we'll cover two topics:

1) The elevator pitch – come prepared to deliver a 60-second pitch that makes your listener understand who you are, what you do and feel the energy behind it all.

After your presentation, we will offer suggestions and ask questions to help you nail your pitch. The object is for you to transfer your enthusiasm to your listener and, in turn empower you to have continued conversations post pitch!

2) Upcoming work presentation – come prepared to give a talk about an upcoming presentation you have for work.

We will review the flow, content, and offer suggestions to help you nail it!
