Third – get that elevator speech ready!
Last week, Bridget talked about creating and refining your elevator speech. This week, she helps you understand how to use your elevator speech and then develop some good questions to start a conversation on the trade show floor.

Marketing yourself is an important part of your career. In this week’s episode, Bridget talks about developing and delivering your elevator speech. Your elevator speech is a brief summary of who you are, what you are doing at work, and what you would like to do in the future. It can be stated in the time that you might ride up or down a few floors in an elevator. Listen this week to learn how to develop your elevator speech and why it’s so important as you market yourself.
