As professionals or freelancers – our roles, projects and portfolio of work can be so varied and so diverse; like a beautiful pick and mix – but it can be difficult to know where to start when you’re in a situation and have to tell someone else what you do and coherently explain the breadth. And yet, it’s an important part of your personal brand, funding applications, job applications, marketing yourself, your social media, networking, project pitching etc.

This 2-hour 15minutes participatory Zoom (with time for questions) session led by Mortal Fools will focus on developing your elevator pitch – it will get you thinking about who you are, what you do, your personal values, what you love about what you do and how to effectively communicate that in a few lines.

In this session:

Post workshop – all participants will receive workshop notes with resources highlighted and you will get access to a Mortal Fools Facebook group, so you can ask questions and of course, offer each other peer to peer support and advice.
