What's an Elevator Speech?

Definition: Elevator Speech

Also known as an elevator pitch, some business big shots say it's as important as a professional looking business card. It's a concise but effective speech that should be completed in the time of an elevator ride, and it generally consists of a pitch about what you have to offer whether it is your own attributes or a service. Outside from literally meeting someone important in the confines of an elevator, your speech can be used in any networking situation or in a job interview when asked the dreaded open ended question "tell me about yourself." You want to market yourself / business / service in a way that gives the person receiving the speech a desire to know more about you.
