Telling Your Story: Evolving past the Elevator Pitch

Most of us hate being asked what we do. It feels like we're being sized up by whoever asked the question and we're never sure what we're supposed to day. Here's the deal - saying the right thing has never been the issue - it has to do with what you believe about yourself and the person asking the question. If you reframe the experience of being asked, "So..what do you do?" you can turn any networking conversation into a moment of true connection for both parties.

In this session we'll:

  • Find out what we're really afraid of when people ask us what we do
  • Identify a meaningful purpose in the work we do
  • Understand what's really behind the question, "So...what do you do?"
  • Build a better response to the question, "What do you do?" and practice as a group


Leading this Workshop will be Reagan Pugh
