On the personal elevator (lift) pitch

Dave Pollard has an interesting blog post about the personal elevator (lift) pitch, “a one-minute summary that conveys the most important information about you”. Quite rightly, such an ice-breaker is a useful skill for those first-time meetings, whether in the lift, at a conference, or at that networking event.

Dave provides a nine point framework based on questions in order to develop your own personal pitch. I like the idea of the questions – getting one to think in terms of responses rather than statements.

Something to think about for that chance meeting that could turn up at any time.
