Business people everywhere are taught they need an “elevator speech” just as much as we need a business card, a website, and air to breathe in order to be successful. But NO ONE likes to give those canned elevator speeches and NO ONE likes to hear them because they’re usually full of blah, blah, blah meaningless marketing drivel and feel so contrived and just yucky. Evidence shows even the most well-­crafted and best­-delivered elevator speeches don’t work to bring in new business. And they completely fall flat on establishing a new business relationship.
