When you go to networking events, how do you introduce yourself? Or when you’re trying to share a quick summary of who you are on your social media account, how do you do it? Was it easy for you to share who you are and what you do in a quick and concise way?

For some of us, crafting our elevator pitch is not an easy task. That’s one of the main reason why we were so excited to have Dannie Fountain from Le Consulting sharing her insights on our September Chicago brunch “Perfect Pitch” at CityGirl Event Studio.

Dannie shared with us why do we all need to have an elevator speech. Knowing that we have a service or products from our business, it’s important that you have the skill to share vital information about who you are at events or online, and to make the impression.

She guided us through a discovery activity where all attendees get to brainstorm their long-form and short-form mission statement. Essentially, the long-form mission statement can be used on about pages, media kits and guest blog post footers. While the short-form mission statement can be used to introduce themselves elevator pitches at networking/business related events and Instagram bios.

The conversations we had at the event flow consistently with everyone asking questions and giving ideas to one another. At the end of the event, we all got a chance to network with other creative women who came and continuing our conversations online on our Facebook group.
