On Tuesday, March 30, CRAVEdc and Sisarina welcomed twenty business professionals to Take it to the Top!, an event night dedicated to helping others create the perfect elevator pitch. Whether it was their business or passion, participants learned how to sum up unique aspects of their services or products in a way that excited others.
Melanie Spring of Sisarina and CRAVEdc's Wendy McAllister were on hand to provide the tools needed to ensure that attendees are always prepared to put their best foot forward.
Designed as a group-based “speed networking” event, participants were paired with each other in an effort to deliver and refine pitches throughout the night. Participants were given approximately 20-minutes to complete a series of eight questions that helped to identify target markets, key messages, descriptors, and the advantages over competitors.
After a few rounds of mock-elevator rides, participants were given the opportunity to deliver their speech on camera. Thanks to Jordan Multimedia Group, video feedback is being made available.
While the event helped professionals hone their pitch, it also served to benefit Socialize Better and Crafting Change, two organizations that received over 50% of the evening's proceeds.
