    According to "The Interview Guys" https://theinterviewguys.com/write-elevator-pitch/
    an Elevator Pitch is "a short, 30-60 second well crafted business pitch telling someone who you are and why they should want to hire you".

    Does anyone have any examples of an elevator pitch for the aviation industry?

    I'm trying to construct mine but the problem is that I honestly hate talking about myself and thus find it difficult to sell myself.

    Lol. Yeah, that's pretty much the way I see it!

    EDIT: I'm on my way to getting my Aircraft Dispatcher's Certificate.

    All I hear about now is elevator pitches and being a disruptor in their respected industry.

    I wouldn't necessarily worry about creating one, but being able to think on the fly and if you have a chance encounter with someone that may be able to help you, being able to communicate who you are, what you're after and making it actionable.

    SOOOOOOOO many people treat interactions like a game of Pokemon GO.

    Such are the ramifications of the gamification of all aspects of life.

    Tell 'em you're not quite done with your "elevator pitch" because your priority is perfecting your climb and descent pitches to keep customers happy and coming back to write more checks.
    If you can't convince them with competence, besot them with bull.

    Was that a pun, a typo, or a malapropism?

    I am an idiot, so most likely a typo.

    To find new synergies, maximum efficiency can be gained by completely reorganizing the master copy of your company’s Ops Specs without telling anyone.
