HBS Elevator Pitch Builder

Do you ever have a hard time explaining what you do to people in just a couple of sentences? More importantly, can you do it so they want to know more? A couple years back, one of our ASTD-Lincoln programs was how to build an effective “elevator pitch.” You know, that quick speech about you and/or your service that can be delivered in 1-2 minutes. It was really effective and I’ve used it a lot. But what do you do if you missed this valuable resource?

The Harvard Business School has created an online elevator pitch builder. It helps you pick words for the five rules, then builds a speech with a word count, estimated time of delivery, and count of repeated words. It’s not perfect, but is certainly a great way to help you look at your speech in another way.

You can check it out online at http://www.alumni.hbs.edu/careers/pitch/. And did I mention it’s FREE?
