Motivational Speaker’s Guide to Elevator Pitches That STAND UP AND STICK OUT

Hi Peeps! (Yes, it is pathetic when a woman in her forties uses the word “peeps” – it’s also pathetic when she buys clip-on dreadlocks, but that didn’t her stop her). Anyway….I have a guest post on daily blogma about elevator pitches, and making them stand up and stick out. Wanted to share in the hopes that it gives you something to help you in your business.

Kelly lifts the spirits of audiences from coast-to-coast using humor, storytelling, and lives of the characters from Prides Hollow - Kelly's make believe small town. This unique approach to motivational speaking allows Kelly to break through communications barriers and connect directly to the audience's imagination.
Her powerful stories and wacky wit will make you laugh, remind you that you matter, show you how to see beyond your obstacles, and teach you how to stand up and stick out in a crowded market.

  1. Kelly, you are so on the money with this post! As a motivational speaker I’m often invited to attend events where people are given 30 seconds to introduce themselves. Yet many still stand and wing it rather than having taken the time to craft something memorable. When I coach sales teams, not only to we look for the benefit to share in an introduction, but the fun factor. Putting your name at the end of an introduction, rather than beginning, is more effective if you want to be remembered as well.

  2. True that Colette! (That’s a new hip phrase I learned this week from another forty-something trying to be cool). I also put my name at the end of my speech so they will remember it. The two most important remembered moments in a motivational speaker’s presentation are the opening and the closing – just as those are the two most important moments in a conference – the two most important moments in a sermon – in a book or a movie – and it just stands to reason that it applies to sales pitches as well.
