According to Wikipedia, an elevator pitch is
'[...] a short description of an idea, product or company that explains the concept in a way such that any listener can understand it in a short period of time. This description typically explains who the thing is for, what it does, why it is needed, and how it will get done. [...]'
A key factor, if someone is able to give a successful pitch, is training and receiving feedback from the audience.
On December 10th 2019, a pitch training workshop was offered to the new 2019 SPARKEES. During a 30 minutes introduction by Jesse LaMarre, the crucial aspects of a convincing pitch were highlighted, including, but not limited to:
- Be visual
- PPP [Purpose, Presence, Practice]
- Cause & Effect
- Know your audience
- Information in relation
Afterwards, the teams trained their pitching skills in front of our SPARK advisor audience.
