Part 1 - About Women in Wine LDN
Join us for a short intro to Women in Wine LDN, how we got started and what we do for London-based women working in the wine trade. We’ll talk about what we’ve learned and what progress we’ve seen and made over the Atlantic.
Part 2 - How to Develop Your Elevator Pitch
If you were trapped in an elevator with a key person you need to make contact with (a potential business partner, employer, new recruit, customer), and had only 20 seconds to introduce yourself, what would you say?
This is a slightly dramatic scenario, but what about all the times you had to make a good, quick first impression in a networking situation and didn’t know quite what to tell people about yourself? A well-crafted ‘elevator pitch’ is the solution to this.
Women in Wine LDN presents a session on how to create a great elevator pitch. We’ll provide tips, tricks and ways to practice your personal pitch, something that will be valuable across all points in your career.
Hosted by Women of the Vine & Spirits and the leadership team of Women in Wine LDN, Regine Lee, Co-Founder, Sula Richardson, Co-Founder,
and Hannah Van Susteren, Media.
