Pitches aim to elevate businessesOct 23, 2008
Verve PR has linked with Colin Barrett of Simply DV to launch â€˜Elevator Pitchesâ€™, an overview of an idea, product, service, or project.
The name reflects the fact that an â€˜elevator pitchâ€™ can be delivered in the time span of a lift ride; for example, three or four minutes, and must therefore contain the distilled essence of a companyâ€™s ethics, people, services and offer.
Companies can record a short, professional high-definition film giving their â€˜elevator pitchâ€™ about what they can offer clients.
The final edit can then be placed on the companyâ€™s own website, on social media sites and can also be sent as a link by e-mail to prospective clients.
Verve managing director Theo Chalmers (pictured with Colin Barrett) said: â€œI met Colin when he filmed and edited a promotional film for Urban Eden, the lobby group I run. I was so impressed with the way he transformed my script and performance into a professional piece that I came up with the idea of â€˜Elevator Pitchesâ€™ for local companies.â€
