Man, great, great tips! Thanks Mike. My favorite point was "tell a story" because just recently I met a woman who runs a Travel Agency at a networking event and she explained her entire business with a short 2 minute story about "The 5 Little Pigs and the Travel Goddess". People laughed, and will remember her for a long time. I know I will. Again, thanks for sharing Mike. Good stuff. ;)

Very interesting, I am trying to formulate a new, effective and unique elevator speech when it comes to interviewing for PR jobs. If anyone has anymore tips or tricks, I would love to hear them =)

Great tips Mike! Thanks for bringing a bit of SXSW to the rest of us :) To answer your question, the only thing I would add to this list is "Don't forget the ask". What next? What is the action you hope the person you are pitching to takes? Be sure to clearly communicate the specific action you wish them to take and set a time frame for follow up.

That's a big one! When you have someone's attention, the call to action is vitally important.
