Hoya Pitchmasters: The Conversational Pitch


02 Dec 6-7:30pm

There’s nothing worse than someone cornering you at a conference and rattling off their 60-second elevator pitch without taking a breath or letting you get a word in edgewise. Sometimes, how you present yourself or an idea can be way off-base from what your audience needs or wants to hear. The real art of getting someone interested in you and your ideas is a two-way street. It’s a give and take. It’s the secret sauce of confidence, curiosity, connection, and influence.

Carol Blymire, CEO of Blymire Communications and Georgetown professor of Personal Branding, will give a short presentation about how to think about who you are, how you’re perceived, and how you can best channel a great idea or thought into a conversation that can more naturally lead to follow-up and collaboration or action.

Come prepared to pitch yourself and an idea, and be prepared to have a conversation about it with other attendees.
