Level-Up Lab:

Crafting Your Elevator Speech 

When was the last time you found yourself with an opportunity to share the successes and challenges of your library with a potential benefactor or collaborator? Are you prepared to tell your story in 2 minutes or less? In business circles it’s called an “elevator speech,” but it’s actually more of an introduction intended to pique someone’s interest to learn more. Our brains remember stories. An elevator speech is a short story. What is your story… in 2 minutes or less? 

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate your idea to stakeholders
  • Explain the benefits of your idea
  • Express your idea in a succinct 2 minute message

Who should attend?

  • Staff who want to be able to express the value of the library, programs, projects, and/or services to their managers, patrons, and other stakeholders.

Competencies Covered:

  • Personal/Interpersonal Competencies
  • Community Relations
