Villhard Speaking Series | "The Art of the 30-Second Biz Pitch"
--
This semester, CEO students will be developing two pitches for their business. The first, a shorter, 30-second pitch to concisely describe the roots of their individual business. The second pitch will be longer (3-4 minutes) and will be featured in our Edwardsville CEO Fish Tank competition this spring!
--
This morning, Doug taught students the components of the perfect 30-second pitch. They even had the chance to view previous students' pitches and critique them via an online survey.
--
What to include in your pitch?? Be sure to clearly identify the:

>>> Problem (How significant is your problem?)
>>> Solution (Is it 'loveable'?)
>>> Secret Sauce (How unique is your solution)
>>> Call to Action (What do you want/need your customers to do?)
>>> Presentation (Engage your audience)

Students will get a chance to present these pitches live to our board of directors in January and will record their final version for group critique in February!

Continued THANKS to Doug Villhard for his leadership, experience and direction. We are thrilled to have you!!
