The top ten finalists of the Spring 2014 Elevator Pitch Contest were announced on April 1st and we can look forward to them competing live in front of their peers and a panel of judges at an event sponsored by the Center for Professional Selling on April 23 at 12:30pm in the Reynolds Building Atrium. The 35 semifinalists were asked to come to campus for a video recording of their 60 second elevator pitch.
All pitches used the same scenario of imagining themselves as a sales representative for Federated Insurance and finding themselves alone in the esteemed company of Mr. John Riggs, the CEO of J.A. Riggs Tractor Company, while riding in an elevator.
The top ten are a excellent cross-sample of the UALR College of Business student body: four Marketing majors, one each from Economics, Finance, Management, International Business, Management Information Systems, and an exchange student.
