1.3 Introductions/Presentation Elevator talk- “Develop your organisational Pitch” An opportunity was given for attendees to practice their organisational pitch. In 5 to 10 words we each made a verbal business card encapsulating the purpose of our organisation. We then moved into developing our elevator pitch relying on 4 key points- Our organisation function; Helps(customers/clients);to become (outcome) so they can (benefit). Some tips from David: – Enthusiasm is contagious, great stories are memorable and facts are soon forgotten. For more information: https://confidenceunlimited.com.au/vexpo/

We were able to have a snapshot of the support this centre will give to those who are living with cancer and their families in the future.
