    Greet elevator speech. You highlighted three key points that any organizational manager wants to hear: increase productivity, decrease waste and make a profit. In my field, I have seen so much waste insofar as man hours and money due to lack of training. For instance, in my current position, because we do not or have not received the proper training in order to perform our jobs as instructional designers, we waste a great deal of time spending our wheels, creating products that do not meet the overall intent, and so on. Overall, what this amounts to is decreased productivity, increased waste, which converts to wasted dollars. If I may add a suggestion, I would move the aforementioned key points to the beginning of the elevator speech in order to “hook” the client right away, opposed to having them wait a minute or more, which can lead to them losing interest right away.

    Wow, very nicely done. I really enjoyed how you grabbed the listeners attention right away with a question about how they could improve their organization. And then you move forward and attempt to answer those same questions and help the organization improve before you even got the job. Basically giving them a taste test of what training can do for them and how you would work said training. Again nice job, I look forward to following you posts in the future.
