Eight Floors of an Elevator Speech

An Elevator Speech  is a short speech (one that can be given when we go from one floor to the next) that we deliver when we introduce ourselves at business meetings, networking events, or when we meet someone for the first time. It’s very crucial that the person we talk to will want to know more about us as we go from one floor to the next.

Below, Fred Miller gives us a very good template of how an elevator speech should be done.

1st Floor  –  Describes Who You Are 

2nd Floor  –  Describes What You Do

3rd Floor  –  Describes Your Expertise

4th Floor  –  Why They Hire Me

5th Floor  –  More Why They Hire Me

6th Floor  –  More Information

7th Floor  –  I Deliver

8th Floor  –  ASK!
