Event Information

The “elevator speech” is often used in the business world. It’s based on the idea that you only have the time it takes to get from the top to bottom floor of a building to introduce yourself and your work. Practice telling your story, and learn effective networking techniques to build on the connections you make in the arts community. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be more comfortable talking about yourself and your work and be prepared for your next networking opportunity.
