Are you needing a new focus for your networking approach?

Women in Business are trying a new speed networking formula where you will be mixed in to groups of 10.

Before we get going there will be the opportunity to fine tune your 1-minute elevator pitch with Heather Hutchings.com & Brightspot Consulting role modelling a pitch before we open the floor to speed networking on a timer system.

By attending you will enjoy 10 opportunities to meet 10 new people, to hear from them and pitch yourself 10 times.

Come along and enjoy the company of other women in business in a fun environment and over a modern and healthy morning tea by Sunday Cantina.

Bookings essential by Thurs 5 Apr for catering purposes – please use Kapiti Chamber online booking form.



When explaining what an Elevator Pitch is, it is often helpful to start out with a definition:

“An informal, extremely short and pithy version of a sales pitch, business plan or product/service overview, designed to get a conversation started.”

Some tips to consider:

  1. Keep your pitch at a high level.
  2. Look to answer fundamental questions like:
    • What is it?
    • Who needs it?
    • Why should I believe what you say?

The goal of any pitch is not to close the deal, instead, get a conversation started to convince the listener that your idea/product/service is something they need to know more about.

Women in Business provides networking for women who own their own business or who work within an organisation and want to be connected to other business women. Be inspired, come along to Women in Business.

To be noticed and remembered, networking is important for all businesses.
