Description:

Dean Fisher will give a talk on how to open a networking conversation with a three- or four-sentence introduction of yourself. Your “elevator speech” is the vehicle by which you open most professional conversations with someone you are meeting for the first time. It is an art. It also has rules and conventions. It requires preparation and practice. Participants are encouraged to bring two copies of their current resume. Dean Fisher will seek volunteers to practice their elevator speeches during the workshop.
