An EFFECTIVE ELEVATOR SPEECH Should Be . . .

We’ve all been there.

You go to a networking event, social function, or seminar and the host says, “Before we get started let’s go around the room. When it’s your turn, stand up and tell us who you are and what you do. Give us your Elevator Speech.

An Effective Elevator Speech should be:

  1. Clear and concise: The speech should convey a clear and concise message about who you are and what you do. Avoid using technical jargon or complex language that might confuse or alienate your audience. Keep it simple and easy to understand. Example: “I’m Fred Miller.  I speak, coach, and write about networking, public speaking, and presentation skills.”

  2. Engage and pique curiosity: Grab the listener’s attention by starting with a compelling statement or a thought-provoking question. This helps to create a sense of curiosity and intrigue, making the listener want to know more. Example: “Who believes Speaking Opportunities are business, career, and leadership opportunities?”

  3. Highlight your unique value proposition: Clearly articulate the unique value you bring to the table. What sets you apart from others in your field? What problem do you solve or need do you fulfill? Emphasize the benefits and outcomes that your audience can expect by engaging with you or your product/service. Example: “Businesses, Individuals, and Organizations hire me because they want to improve their networking, public speaking, and presentation skills. Doing so will increase business, career, and leadership opportunities.”

  4. Connect emotionally to your audience, even if it is only one person: People are often driven by emotions when making decisions. We will do more to avoid pain than seek pleasure. Incorporate an emotional appeal into your Elevator Speech, whether it’s through storytelling, sharing a personal connection, or highlighting the positive impact you can make in someone’s life. Example: “What opportunities is the Fear of Public Speaking preventing you from achieving?”

  5. Spark further conversation: End your speech with a call to action that encourages further discussion or exploration. This could involve suggesting a meeting, inviting the listener to visit your website or social media profiles, or providing your contact information. Make it easy for the listener to take the next step in connecting with you. Example: “You probably don’t know anyone who wants to improve their public speaking, presentation skills, or elevator speech, do you? If so, we should schedule a conversation.” Asked in this manner will evoke more responses. It’s not what they were expecting.

Keep in mind the goal of an Elevator Speech is to leave a lasting impression and create an opportunity for further conversation and connection.

By incorporating these elements, you can craft a compelling and memorable Elevator Speech that captivates your audience and is absolutely, positively – NO SWEAT!
