Lunch&Learn session on “The Perfect Elevator Pitch”

A sales pitch is the most basic and versatile tool in any professional’s arsenal. Whether you’re looking to get a job or land clients, the elevator pitch is what gets your foot in the door!

We had the pleasure of welcoming Danny Devriendt, a communications professional with over 15 years of experience and learn how to craft a powerful and compelling elevator pitch and leverage it in all of your networking and interviews to make an impression that will last.

Danny highlighted certain key areas to focus on to deliver “the perfect elevator pitch”:

– Avoid being boring

– Wear something that will make you be remembered

– Make yourself likeable

– Be contactable

– Always be closing

– Be conceptual – “this is what I could do for you”

– Be compelling and concise

– Customise the offer

– Don’t give up

Speaker: Danny Devriendt, Executive Vice President, Digital & Social Media Strategist, EMEA at Porter Novelli

Topic: A crash-course on how to sell yourself in Brussels

    • Hi Sean,
      We currently don’t tape our presentations, so no feed available I’m afraid.
      But thanks for the suggestion, we’ll see what we can do in the future.
      Best regards,
      Petra Naster (Events & Marketing Manager)
