On Wednesday 20th May, we held the XXIII edition of our Elevator Pitch networking event. This edition took place at Boqueria, in the heart of Battersea, member of the Spanish Chamber. Jerusalén Gunning, Public Relations of the restaurant, welcomed everyone on behalf of Boqueria and led the attendees to the bright and elegant room where the event took place.
On this occasion the event was chaired by Cristina Carmona, Head of Corporate Relations and Communication, who started the event explaining the dynamics of this activity to the participants; María Prieto, Events and Communication Co-ordinator and Irati Díaz de Tuesta, from the Information and Promotion Department. After the brief presentation, each attendee had 2 minutes to give a concise and concrete introduction about their company’s main line of activity and services they provided. Having done so, there was a second opportunity for each participant to ask and be asked several questions.
For those of you that have never attended nor heard of the Elevator Pitch, the main purpose of this event is to provide participants with the possibility to expand their network and to explore synergies as well as further avenues of collaboration with the rest of participants.
Should you be interested in participating in such event, there are just a couple of things you need to know before signing up for it the next time. Firstly, there is a maximum of 14 places available and only one participant per company can attend. Besides, only two companies from the same sector are able to attend each edition, since we promote the diversity within our participants.
In this edition there was a wide variety of sectors represented such as Public Relations; Legal Services; Restaurant and Catering Services; Training and Learning; Digital Communications; Governmental Institutions; Events Organisers; Outsourcing Services; Property Marketing; Fintech; Hotels; Health; and Relocation Services.
We would also like take this opportunity to thank all the professionals who have been part of the XXIII edition of the Elevator Pitch and our gratitude to Boqueria for kindly hosting the event and welcoming all of us. We are looking forward to seeing you at another event soon.
