The art of the elevator pitch

Have you noticed how important it is becoming to be able to pitch your ideas (and yourself) in just a few minutes?

So how good is your pitch?

And how good are your pitching and presentation skills?

The Collaboration Skills Initiative is holding a session to allow people to rehearse their elevator pitches and receive advice from the Engineering Department’s Visiting Professors of Innovation, all of whom come from an industrial and venture background. We’ll use the same format that worked so well during the recent ‘Sales for researchers’ course.

Wednesday 20th January

3:30pm for coffee and cakes – followed by the session

Oatley Room – Engineering Department, Trumpington St, Cambridge

If you’d like to come along, either to pitch or to observe, then please contact Holly Shaw ( There are a limited number of slots for pitches so if you want to pitch do please let Holly know soon.
