Elevator pitches should be less than one minute, and layout your best and brightest points. Follow these five steps for effective speakers and find yourself impressing more people at work, school, or in everyday life.
CHECKLIST FOR FINE TUNING YOUR ELEVATOR SPEECH
STEP 1: Write down everything on your mind that you want to discuss (Brainstorming key notes)
STEP 2: Cut out the filler. Make short and powerful sentences. Eliminate unnecessary words.
STEP 3: Connect the phrases to each other. Your elevator address has to flow naturally and smoothly. Don't rush.
STEP 4: Memorize key points and practice.
STEP 5: Have you really answered the key question of your listener: What's In It For Me? If not, revise!
I couple these tips with an assignment I call radio roundup, where students select a historical person or vocabulary word to research and write a one minute speech. We record them using the free program audacity and the students enjoy practicing and improving their vocal presentation skills. We focus on writing and delivering great content in an engaging way. These five speaking tips will help your content standout in a short speech.
