About This Class

In this 12 minute class, I'll provide you with the tools to create an elevator pitch that tells your story. From here on out, we'll call this the Story Pitch. I'll take you through a simple, 3-step process to draft a Story Pitch that you can use for job interviews, networking events, and off-the-cuff conversations. 

By the end of this class, students will have a written draft of their Story Pitch that they will put into practice.

This helps how I present myself not in a stiff manner.
Simple and practical
I like the set up of this class. For me, the background music and the slides introducing each section makes it easy to stay engaged.
