Whether they call it an elevator pitch or a spiel, almost every professional communication seminar is going to include a section on explaining what you do in 30 seconds or less. In a soundbite society, that skill is becoming more and more important. Here's a great example (and a retake) on how it can be done:
Today's Tuneage Tuesday challenge: Record a 30 second or less video of yourself talking about your work and send us a link or the file to see yourself on an upcoming Tuesday! It's super easy to use your computer, smart phone*, or digital camera to record 30 seconds. Try it now!
*If it's easier to send your video phone to phone, email me at hbenson at researchamerica.org so I can send you the appropriate contact line.
