Elevate Your Elevator Speech at the Carbon County Women in Business Luncheon

  • Share:
October 24, 2018

Mom was wrong; you CAN talk to strangers! Please join the Carbon Chamber & Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) on Thursday November 1st from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at Slopeside Pub & Grill at Blue Mountain Resort in Palmerton for our Carbon County Women in Business November Luncheon. We’ll be engaging in an exciting and interactive presentation about “Elevating Your Elevator Speech” with Louis Allegra of SCORE Lehigh Valley.

If your elevator speech causes people to get off on the next available floor, then this presentation is for you! You’ll enjoy a delicious lunch as we probe the purpose and benefits of an effective elevator speech and provide tips for engaging your prospects and keeping the conversation alive.

Our presenter, Louis Allegra, SCORE Lehigh Valley, has held senior executive positions in businesses ranging from $30 million to $5 billion in sales. Throughout his career, Lou has demonstrated innovative leadership in a variety of disciplines including sales, marketing, new product development, manufacturing, human resources, safety, environment and health. He has challenged and inspired teams to achieve seemingly unachievable goals. When asked to sum up his presentation in a couple of sentences, he shares, "You've got 10 to 15 seconds to capture someone's attention. Make the most of that opportunity." 

The Carbon County Women in Business Group is sponsored by the Carbon Chamber & Economic Development Corporation, the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, First Northern Bank & Trust and Andreas Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning.

The group meets every second Thursday of the month for lunch, networking and personal and professional development. Men are also welcome to attend.
