Davinci Virtual 101s

Business meetings can be held for a wide variety of reasons, but the impression you make on others is often the most memorable part of the event. As business partnerships are usually built on trust, making positive impressions in every meeting can help your business grow. Below are a few small tips for maintaining proper etiquette during meetings where you have been invited to attend.

  1. Be on Time!

Perhaps the most important thing you can do to prepare for a good meeting is to be on time for the event. People often operate on tight schedules, and if you cause delays, everybody is going to feel put out if the meeting ends with unresolved items. Always plan to be early to every meeting so potential delays won’t be much of an issue.

What is an elevator pitch?

An elevator pitch is an extremely brief and incredibly persuasive sales speech or presentation and an effective sales tool that all entrepreneurs should have ready.

Imagine the length of an elevator ride, approximately 30 seconds.
