An elevator pitch is a tool used by business people everyday to introduce themselves, a company, an idea, or a project to potential employers, clients, investors, entrepreneurs.
Improvised social and professional situations are a formidable challenge for ESL students, mainly because it requires an “on the spot” reaction in English. The elevator pitch concept is the best way to properly prepare them for such cases.
Having a good elevator pitch is the equivalent of a “good first impression” on a first date. It opens the door and sets a positive tone for the rest of the encounter.
This lesson includes:
- What is an ‘Elevator Pitch'?
- What is it for?
- Key components that every elevator pitch should contain.
- What an elevator pitch IS NOT.
- Your “Elevator pitch” check list.
- The adjective test.
- The editing.
- Making the message relevant to the listener
- How to deliver the pitch
- Possible pitfalls
- Dissecting an award-winning elevator pitch

My lessons are proof-read by me, (but more importantly, by more serious and intelligent critics) However, it’s been our experience that there’s always something that we miss… if you find a mistake or feel that there is room for improvements, please let me know in the "Ask a Question" section (rather than rate the entire document badly), I promise to fix it immediately and you’ll have my deepest gratitude.

The products in this shop are all produces by a dyslexic teacher (hence the name).
I’m painfully aware of the contradiction in my choice of profession, but I can honestly say (after 25 years of teaching ESL classes) that there’s nothing I’d rather be doing.
Much like other challenged individuals who go through life with one hand tied behind their backs, I make up for what I lack with abundant research, high quality graphics, humor, passion and love.
I own every ‘correcting program’ available on the market and my lessons are proof read by wonderful, kind (and slightly horrified) TPT teachers, BUT there are always some errors that slip by us.
If you feel offended by the existence of errors in what is supposed to be a teaching tool…
If you are an open minded individual, that can except the possibility that you might find errors in the product that you are about to buy (you get a free product if you send me the errors to correct), then this product is for you and I hope it delivers everything you hoped for and more, along with my gratitude.
