Networking & Elevator Speeches

Brian McGuigan – Artist Trust
Thursday, May 16
, 5-7pm
Location: Studio of Catherine Johnson above the Roslyn Post Office (122 W. Pennsylvania Ave)
The elevator speech is often used in the business world. It’s based on the idea you only have the time it takes to get from the top to bottom floor of a building to introduce yourself and your work. In this workshop, you’ll develop your elevator speech, practice telling your story, and learn effective networking techniques to build on the connections you make in the arts community. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be more comfortable talking about yourself and your work and be prepared for your next networking opportunity.
