Elevator speech

Elevator speech/pitch/statement is a slang term used to describe a brief speech that outlines an idea for a product, service, or project.The name comes from the notion that the speech should be delivered in the short time period of an elevator ride.

中文释义:所谓的“Elevator speech”之所以能够变成习语,来源于互联网时代,西方人时间观念逐步加强,非常注重讲话的效率,再加上有一些著名的成功推销案例都是在电梯与人会面的短短几分钟内搞定的。它代表一个人的业务熟练能力,以及对自己要做的事情非常清楚,能够在很短的时间内让别人清楚你的想法、信服你的专业度。
