I’m working on a communications discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
I just need the speech writtenPresentation 1: Elevator speech (online video): 45 – 60 seconds
• If you found yourself in an elevator with an executive representing
the company you would most like to work for, what would you
say? How would you capitalize on that opportunity? That is the
idea behind the elevator speech. An elevator speech, sometimes
referred to as an elevator pitch, is a short summary used to
quickly and simply defines a person, profession, product,
service, organization or event and its value proposition
• The elevator speech may be used to win a job at a networking event
or job fair. Businesses are increasingly asking prospective
employees to submit videos that serve as elevator speeches,
along with the traditional resume and references. Products are
sold to investors on crowd-funding sites such as
www.kickstarter.com and www.indiegogo.com utilizing elevator
• For this assignment, you will write an elevator speech that
either:1. introduces yourself to a prospective hiring manager,
or 2. introduces a product or service (associated with your
degree program or professional interests) to a prospective
customer or investor.
• The speech should include an attention-getting statement, a
description of what you or your product does, and an explanation
of the value you or your product provides to your audience. Your
conclusion should include an appropriate request that will move
your interaction forward.• Remember, an effective elevator speech is crafted in advance andpracticed, so that the words flow naturally when you speak.
Practice, practice, and practice your speech in front of friends
and in front of a mirror. When you are ready to deliver it
flawlessly, ask a friend to video record your elevator speech, or
use your webcam (follow instructions for Student Biography). Be
sure to wear professional clothing and colors that look good on
• Your grade will be based upon: (a) use of attention-getting
introduction; (b) effective summary of your or your product’s
skills and value; (c) analysis of and adaptation to your imagined
audience; (d) appropriateness of movement, posture, dress,
vocals, etc, (e) outline.
• Videotape your speech and upload the video to the Elevator
Speech Discussion Board. Use Kaltura mashup for uploading
or creating video.
• While recording speech, assume that you are in the classroom and
you have an audience. Keep a good distance from the computer
or camera that your half body is visible. Use a table or counter
top in place of roster. Do not read from the paper, it should be
extemporaneous, maintain good eye contact (do not look here
and there or up and down), do not be monotone or robotic, and
be enthusiastic about your speech.
