If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jo Griffiths.

Do you have a punchy ‘elevator pitch’ to sell your idea to a collaborator, colleagues or potential funder?

The elevator pitch is important because it enables you to communicate quickly and effectively and preparing one ensures that you are absolutely clear about what you’re offering, why it’s valuable and what you want next.

On Wednesday 20 January, between 15:30 and 17:30 we are holding a session to allow people to rehearse their elevator pitches and receive advice from the Visiting Professors of Innovation ( We’ll use the same format that worked so well during the recent ‘Sales for researchers’ course.

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.

The session will be held in the Oatley Room and afternoon refreshments will be provided – let Holly know if you have any dietary requirements.
