Lesson Details and Materials

The most effective communicators can convey an important message via both written and verbal mediums, in both short and long-form. But make no mistake, doing so requires a combination of art and skill that can be developed through practice. Further, these skills are not independent of each other – improving your ability to articulate a succinct, precise written message will also improve your spoken-language skills. And, taking the time to learn to write a short, clear statement will help you craft a more organized, cogent, and longer statement about the same topic. In this session, we will share best practices and frameworks for – and practice – writing an elevator pitch describing your project. This session will last approximately 80 minutes.

Lesson Objectives – by the end of the session, the participants will:

  • Have improved their ability to concisely and accurately describe a problem in their community, delivered verbally and in writing
  • Understand the importance of consistent and precise communication
  • Demonstrate the ability to give and receive communication-related feedback
  • Understand the importance of clearly conveying the problem/ need, possible solutions, and actions that can be taken to make the solutions happen
  • Understand the relationship between the elevator pitch and the grant proposal
