Management Series



The British Chamber of Commerce in China is proud to launch the BritCham Management Series, a series of professional management events that aims to improve your own skillset across all facets of business. The inaugural event explores how to improve your Elevator Pitch as you introduce your start-up, product or services and grow your business.

You’ve heard the scenario: you step into an elevator and go up one floor. The elevator doors open and in walks the client of your dreams. They start some small talk and ask, “What do you do?” and you’ve got the rest of the elevator ride to respond. How do you answer that in 20 seconds in such a way that gets them interested?

Scary? Absolutely. But it could happen to you—tomorrow—and you’ll want to be prepared. The aptly named “elevator pitch” is a concise, compelling introduction that can be communicated in the amount of time it takes someone to ride the elevator to their floor.

Join BritCham & Martin UK designer, TEDx Beijing speaker & presentation coach as he shares insights from 18 years professional experience working with The London Science Museum, VW, Ofo, Mercedes, Cartier & Dior.

At this event Martin will:

  • Unpack pitch case studies showing how they work
  • Share structures & processes you can use instantly with a pitching opportunity & live coaching
  • Learn skills which will help you save time and communicate more clearly
  • Enjoy your future presentations
