Masterclass session: Create Your ‘Pitchtastic’ Elevator Pitch – with Mel Sherwood
How do you answer when someone asks ‘What do you do?’
Are you ready with an answer that clearly outlines what you speak about and makes people curious to find out more?
Opportunities to promote our speaking businesses are everywhere and we need to be ready to ‘pitch’ at any given moment. That may be a one line answer in response to the question ‘What do you do?’ or a longer ‘pitch’ at a meeting or networking event.
As speakers, where communication is our business, it is crucial to be able to confidently, clearly and consistently convey who we are and what we do.
This session will give you the opportunity to:
- Refine your positioning statement or your ‘conversational pitch’
- Develop or further enhance your 1 minute ‘elevator pitch’
- Practice delivering your pitch and receive constructive feedback from your peers
- Share what you do so that your speaker colleagues know who you work with and how to refer you
Masterclass session: Delivering a ‘Fillet Steak Service’ in a ‘Mince Economy’
– with Stuart Harris
In these days when customers need to feel valued and businesses are being ranked by their Net Promoter Score or Customer Satisfaction Score, you had better be delivering a First Class Service, otherwise, your customers will go elsewhere.
In the Hospitality Industry, customers don’t mind paying the price of Fillet Steak if they are getting Fillet Steak. What they don’t want to do is feel like they are paying Fillet Steak prices and getting served Mince.
So, are you providing your customers with a ‘Fillet Steak Service’ or is it ‘Mince’?
In this session, Stuart will demonstrate some of his sure-fire ways to make sure your customers are more than happy to pay a full price for a full service.
In this short Masterclass, you will learn a number of techniques on how to provide an Excellent Customer Experience including:
- How to deal with Brand Disloyalty
- Learning how to exceed expectations
- Being able to answer that tricky question… “How much do you charge?”
- Go out tomorrow & up your game by TWO
Showcase: Our member Kevin McMahon will deliver a 10min ‘Showcase’.
Register for PSA Scotland’s value-packed June event today. It will be held at APEX Waterloo Place Hotel, on Monday 19th Jun 2023.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
