Villhard Speaking Series: The Art of the 30-second Pitch!
--
After a fantastic discussion surrounding students' sharing the feedback they received from potential customers over break, Doug Villhard presented on how to develop the perfect 30-second pitch for each student's individual business idea!
--
What components should this pitch feature?
- Problem: Significance of the problem
- Solution: Adequacy of the solution
- Secret Sauce: Uniqueness of the solution
- Call to Action: Propulsion to act
--
In addition to thinking through all of these important components of a business, students must also be purposeful about their video set up, presentation and audience engagement.
--
Videos will be filmed and shared the first week of February! Stay tuned :)
