  • Women of the Vine & Spirits is often contacted by journalists and members of the media asking for suggestions and referrals on women and women-owned companies that suit a number of different editorial themes (innovators/change makers, environmental leaders, dare devils, etc.).

    Women of the Vine & Spirits is often contacted by journalists and members of the media asking for suggestions and referrals on women and women-owned companies that suit a number of different editorial themes (innovators/change makers, environmental leaders, dare devils, etc.). Since our network is global, we thought we can provide these media contacts with the best recommendations if our members tell us who in their lives is making an impact or should be nominated! We always want to hear from you who inspires you and who we should be paying attention to. Women to watch!

    In this group, we will post when we get editorial questions so you can provide your input!

  • 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 30 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...

    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 30 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.


    We recently held a webinar with Women in Wine LDN where they walked us through how to form an impactful Elevator Pitch. Below is "Amy's" first attempt:

    "I’m Amy, I work on the sales team at Windsor Sparkling Wines. I am responsible for managing our on-trade UK restaurants. I have been in the role for three years and hold my WSET Diploma."

     

    Not very compelling, right? To create a compelling elevator pitch you should consider: 1. Your Profession 2. Expertise and Competency 3. Types of Businesses 4. Special Strengths

     

    Take Two:

    "I’m Amy, and I work in on-trade sales at Windsor Sparkling Wines. I am responsible for selling our wines to fine-dining restaurants across the UK. Since I took the role as on-trade manager three years ago, I have doubled the number of restaurants we work with to 300. This year, I ran a really exciting project in which I surpassed my targets of placing our rosé on wine lists across London. More recently, I have been working to increase brand awareness in the northern cities through a series of tastings for sommeliers. This was my second role in the wine industry, having previously worked my way up from a shop floor assistant to a manager. I recently just received my WSET Diploma and continue to further my professional development and interests as a member of Women in Wine London."

    Much more engaging and interesting! Thank you to Women in Wine LDN for the examples and tips!
