About the Event

Ditch the Elevator Pitch: How to be Memorable & Successfully Scale Your Board Search Without One

You've probably been told to have an elevator pitch handy for networking events and board interviews. In this session, board leadership expert, CEO and keynote speaker Tissa Richards explains why the traditional "elevator pitch" may actually be limiting the success of your board journey and your reputation - and what you should replace it with to control your narrative and your success.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Understand the downsides of elevator pitches to your brand and board success
  • Learn how to confidently and memorably explain "why you" in a powerful 1-2 sentences
  • Learn how to be memorable and impactful in any situation

This takes confidence and preparation. It may sound daunting, but it's achievable and incredibly effective. When you control the narrative about yourself, you control how people understand you, refer you, and take action in response to you. You’ll find yourself referred to more board opportunities, you’ll show up with more confidence and effectiveness in board interviews, and you'll successfully scale your board search far beyond your immediate network.
