Monday Motivation | Rehearse Your Pitch
Kick off your week with Monday Motivation!
Tip of the week
When meeting a new contact at a networking event, you may have very little time to make a good impression. Make sure to practice talking about yourself as a professional in a concise manner. That means, create a pitch for yourself! Introduce who you are, explain what you do, and tell a story about what makes you so great (using real-life examples!). All this should last about half a minute. Can you do it? It will be difficult at first, but practicing out loud will get you where you need to be in no time. Hint: it’s all about the keywords you’ll use, not about speaking as quickly as you can.
