GC-TSS - Communication
First Impressions Last - Mastering Your Elevator Pitch
by Ms Geraldine Kan
14 Jun 2023, Wed | 10.30am – 12noon | ABN Seminar Room 1-1
About the seminar:
First impressions last. We only have a few minutes to make an impression on potential collaborators, employers, advisors. A strong elevator pitch allows you to stand out and differentiate yourself, to show the impact your work will make, and communicate the pain points it solves for others. It determines whether you get the grant, whether you land the project, whether you score the job. And for that, you need to clearly articulate why you’re doing what you’re doing, how it matters to others, and what will change because of you. This 90-minute Communications workshop will provide participants the tools to speak about your work in a clear, confident, and compelling way.
