5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Advice, And Leading By Example 22 Nov. 2014
By Steve Sipress - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
*FULL DISCLOSURE* The author has been a consulting client of mine for several years, and mentions that fact in this book.

Seth Godin titled one of his books, "All Marketers Are Liars", and then pointed out on page 15 of the book that of course "I wasn't being completely truthful with you when I named this book. Marketers aren't liars."

Felicia Slattery has done the same thing here. She has brilliantly appeared controversial with her title to get attention, yet actually, in this book, she simply renames the elevator speech as a "mini-introduction," and teaches the reader how to create an effective one, as well as exactly when and where to use it.

Being a master communicator, networker and speaker herself, Felicia also shares extremely valuable tips on how to do all three of those much more effectively than most businesspeople do now. She encourages and instructs the reader on precisely what to do when meeting peers and prospects instead of what they most likely currently do, which is simply spitting out the dreaded canned "elevator speech."

Felicia's unbeatable positive spirit and joy for helping people come shining through in this outstanding book. Every businessperson could benefit from becoming a consulting client of Felicia's; the next-best thing would be reading this book.

And implementing what she teaches.
5.0 out of 5 stars Say more with less... 20 Jun. 2017
By Donna Blevins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Coming from a sales and communication background, I was intrigued by the title “Kill the Elevator Speech,” especially from the heart-centered, woman-of-faith, Felicia Slattery. Because of her sincerity and her ability to get to the point, I goggle up her training --- from her Signature Speech™ program to her Speaker One-Sheet Templates to her “21 Ways to Make Money Speaking” quick-read book, to name a few.

The one thing that stands out for me is that Felicia helps me say more with less. The “elevator speech” phrase was originally coined to prompt you to deliver what you do in a short time span riding on an elevator, anywhere from thirty seconds to two minutes. Because of that, it seems that over the years, people spew out their elevator speech without first connecting.

Felicia helped me realize that it’s not about me; it’s about the other person. Find out who THEY are and WHAT delights them. Create a dialogue when meeting new people rather than puking out what you want them to know about you.

Engagement is the key. Thank you once again, Felicia, for helping me to say more with less!

5.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing approach to business communications 9 Dec. 2014
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really wish everyone would read this book. I get tired of being "dumped on" when meeting new people at various events. I'm afraid to ask people what they do because I open myself up to a canned response that makes no attempt to create a business relationship.

Felicia's approach is a dramatic improvement - she offers a refreshing approach to building a business relationship with new people. Rather than repeating a tired elevator speech that likely scares off most people, this book teaches techniques and systems to actually connect with people. And, Felicia reminds us that our focus is on the other person (not ourselves).

I sincerely hope that every businessperson reads this book - it will make business events much more enjoyable and productive for everyone involved.
5.0 out of 5 stars So refreshing! Takes the focus off of me and onto others PLUS no need to memorize an elevator speech. 22 Nov. 2014
By Shelley Hitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is great for any communicator. Lots of great tips, but most importantly takes away the need to have a memorized "elevator speech" when networking and meeting new people. Instead Felicia recommends putting the focus on the other person first.

I loved the list of questions to ask when meeting someone for the first time as it gives you a starting place.

Not only will you learn that you do NOT need an elevator speech (YAY!) but you'll also learn about how to create your signature speech and much more.

Highly recommended!
5.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Terrific Book! 28 Feb. 2015
By Barb Orozco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After years of struggling to come up with a "good enough" elevator speech and never feeling good about doing one, I now understand completely why it never has worked for me! And, I'm so glad to know what to do instead. Felicia's tips for connecting are spot on, compelling and so very comfortable! I am now eager to meet new people in any setting, so I may practice my new approach and build connections. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to feel better in professional AND personal interactions.
