The Elevator Pitch
Presented by Laura Allen, a.k.a. “The Pitch Girl”. Laura knows how to create a great pitch. As proof, she once closed a 5.5 million dollar deal from a cold call! She also knows how to make a great first impression - she once sent a three foot tall steel pyramid to Star Wars director George Lucas as part of a client pitch. That yielded approximately 60 million in revenue for her client. In 2002, Laura decided to harness the power of the pitch when she co-founded 15SecondPitch.com, a website dedicated to helping individuals create a better pitch that they could say in just 15 seconds. Now, as the Pitch Girl, Laura is helping job seekers and entrepreneurs hone their pitching skills. You can find her website at: 15secondpitch.com
