Prepare and Deliver your Elevator Pitch

This combined webinar and practical session will help you explain your research and wider interests to new people in a short ‘Elevator Pitch’ format.

In the webinar, we discuss how to create an effective elevator pitch for different occasions, to assess what you need to communicate, what others will want to hear and how reduce the use of technical language.

The workshop will give you time and space to practise pitching your research to a friendly and supporting peer group. You will be able to gain feedback from your peers and develop a successful elevator pitch that you can use for networking.
