Session 801: Fever Pitch: 3 Minutes to Make Your Organization’s Case

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Three minutes to tell me who you are, what you do, and why someone should care--sometimes that’s all you get. Being able to tell your organization’s story and deliver your message in a concise and compelling way is the name of the game. This session challenges a group of pre-selected attendees to take the stage and give GMMB communications experts—and the audience—their company or organization’s best 3-minute “elevator” pitch. Following the presentations, participants and the audience will discuss key elements of getting your message across effectively.
