Unit 5 Discussion Board: Elevator Pitch Please dont worry about the recording part of this assignment, I will do that based on what you complete. Our authors wrote &quot;Stories have the amazing dual power to simulate and to inspire. And most of the time we don’t even have to use much creativity to harness these powers-we just need to be ready to spot the good ones that life generates every day.&quot; And it’s also important to remember as Dan Heath reminds us in his very inspiring podcast, that sometimes we don’t see our own stories. This assignment is about to change that! Part I Directions: After listening to the Making You Stick (attached) podcast, which I promise you is very inspiring, review the Tip Sheet by the Heath Brothers(https://heathbrothers.com/resources/) for crafting an elevator pitch–about you and why you should get the job, the promotion, or the lead in the play. Please read and be sure to click through to the examples, our authors’ 6 Tips for Giving an Elevator Pitch https://coursematerials.net/COM320/Unit5/COM320Unit5.htm Write your elevator pitch for getting the job or a promotion. Keep it to under 60 seconds. You must write it out in order to practice and time it, but you don’t want it to sound memorized. You really want to be able to deliver it in an elevator. Note #5 – you must include a story, which ties back to the advice in the podcast. So… go for it; script an elevator pitch. Record your pitch so you can hear yourself and you can get feedback from me and your group members. Use Sound Cloud (Links to an external site.) and then share the link. (I recommend reading the resources for confidence in speaking first and I want to know if you try the tip from the Forbes article.) Post your Sound Cloud link. Using Sound Cloud is simple. Just get a free account and then choose upload and record. Then you can simply share the link to your Sound Cloud recording. You can’t edit. Your pitch doesn’t have to be perfect, but it will be obvious if you’re reading it and haven’t practiced. Tips for recording: Practice the tip presented in the Forbes article. (It really works!) Practice. Practice. Record Listen to yourself. Record and slow down. Don’t rush. If you can’t clearly articulate your elevator in under 60 seconds, you’re pitch is too long. Add emotion and emphasis by varying the tone and pitch of your voice. Have fun. Yes, this is hard, but you’ll be sooo glad to have done it. You will learn a lot about yourself and your stories. Peer Review: Part I: Please post: 1. Company or organization. Briefly state why you have chosen. 2. Summarize your presentation idea, including your audience. 3. Post your "Core Message" – this will be your Slogan or Theme, like Nike’s "Just Do It" and at least one visual that you will use. 4. Briefly describe your presentation’s main points.
