"The only way that human beings could ever have survived as a species for as long as we have is that we've developed another kind of decision-making apparatus that's capable of making very quick judgments based on very little information." - Malcolm Gladwell

The Elevator Pitch!

Have you ever been on an elevator? Interrupted by a stranger?

  • Who are you?
  • What do you want from me?
  • Why should I care?

Not necessarily the order of your questions, is it? It depends on your view of the stranger, your feelings about the stranger, your impulse, what's on your mind, and how quickly you want to get off that elevator - unperturbed. True? Well then, think it through.

Elevator Pitch

Note Well! It isn't about The Pitch! It is about SHARING VALUE! It is about TRUST. It is about YOUR NETWORK.

So, why the pitch? Why do we get it so wrong? How do we fix it?

Packing a THOUSAND GIMMICK-WORDS into a CORNERED EAR will NOT improve your chances; THAT'S SCARY.

And It is NOT about speed-talking!

It is NOT about SHORT-ATTENTION SPAN - that's insulting! It IS about sharing value, it IS about trust, it IS about family, it IS about friendship, it IS about community - all in all, it IS about valued network building.
