On Tuesday 2nd December we organised the XXI edition of our Elevator Pitch networking event, which was kindly hosted by The Caesar Hotel, member of the Chamber. The hotel is located in a quiet street in the Bayswater area, minutes away from Hyde Park. Mr. Víctor Juliá, Regional Sales Manager, was our host on the day and welcomed everyone on behalf of the hotel.
On this occasion the event was chaired by Igor Urra, Our Secretary General and Cristina Carmona, Head of Corporate Relations and Communication, who started the event by explaining the dynamics of this activity to the participants. For those of you who are not familiar with the Elevator Pitch format, here are the basic rules to bear in mind:
-Only one participant per company is allowed and there is a maximum of 14 companies taking part in each edition.
-Up to two companies from the same sector can take register for the event.
-Each attendee has two minutes to explain the line of business and scope of the company he represents to the rest of participants.
The reduced number of participants and the format makes this activity a highly interactive one, which aims at providing attendees with the opportunity to explore synergies and avenues of collaboration among them.
After the round of introductions is over, each participant has an additional 2-minute slot to reply to questions made by any of the other attendees. Once the question round is finished, participants can further network without the previous time constrictions.
In this edition there was a wide variety of sectors represented such as Translation Services, Online Food Retailers, Legal Services, Accounting, Events Management, Coaching, Insurance, Public Relations, Finance, Investment, and Consulting.
We would very much like to thank all the professionals who were part of the XXI edition of the Elevator Pitch for having joined us and special thanks to The Caesar Hotel for their support with the organisation of this event. Although this was our last Elevator Pitch for 2014, keep an eye on the Upcoming Events section of our website to be informed about the 2015 editions.
