In the film and television business people talk about having an elevator pitch ready. An elevator pitch is just a short , sharp, motivating and engaging summary of their TV or film idea. It is for those moments , such as when you share a lift, when you meet someone you want to influence. You cant risk boring them and they are too busy to make an appointment to see you. So you briskly pitch your idea whenever you get the chance . A successful coach needs to be able to do this too.
