The Kings Head Hotel, 357 King William Street, Adelaide SA 5000
Join your YWP peers and the SA YWP Committee for an in-depth look at how to craft and deliver an elevator pitch, and help elevate your networking skills and your career!
This workshop is a valuable opportunity for young professionals to learn how to best communicate who they are and what they are working toward in a professional setting. Networking is key in establishing a successful and diverse career, and the ability to communicate and represent yourself with confidence will help in all of your networking endeavours.
Our guest speaker is Seshnie Taylor, Program Manager at Young Change Agents, an organisation promoting entrepreneurship and providing youth with the tools to build communication skills and empower future leaders. This will be followed by a workshop, facilitated by Seshnie and Catherine Lethbridge, Head of Marketing and Communication for Workfacta. The workshop will have you crafting your own elevator pitch, with the help and guidance of our fantastic facilitators. You will learn how to grab attention, communicate what sets you apart and start an engaging conversation.
Following the workshop you will have the opportunity to take your freshly crafted elevator pitches to a “speed networking” activity, where you will practice the pitch to fellow YWPs!
No matter what your profession is, or which aspect of water you work in, this event will have you networking with confidence in no time! Numbers are limited so be sure to get in quick.
We encourage you to think about what you might like to say or communicate in your elevator pitch ahead of the event. Check out the YouTube video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyxfERV5ttY, for a quick intro and example of an elevator pitch!
