What’s your elevator pitch?

24 May 2015 | Product Management

If you are a consultant working on a client, then you must have a concise and clear elevator pitch.

Basically you meet another consultant on the elevator and she asks you: what is the name of that client of yours? What are you doing there?

Here is mine:

I help Sicredi to be more agile, so they can release valuable software products faster and more often.

Basically I use a simple template and apply it accordingly.

“I help/teach ________ (the client) to ________ (main goal), so they can _________ (main benefit).”

As I am traveling to a conference, I decided to have a more generic one. The template definitely helped me.

I help courageous executives to implement lean & agile ideas in their organization, so they can focus on what is really important.

 

So, what is your elevator pitch?
