TWO MINUTE TALK®

YOUR PERSONAL PITCH -- PERFECTED

WHAT IS a two minute talk?

The Two Minute Talk® presentation is a short video of a speaker in front of a group talking on a topic of the speaker’s choosing. It can be considered a sizzle reel because it is part of the “sizzle” to your steak, illustrating a sense of your personality and style.

WHY SHOULD I HAVE ONE?

Whether you’re an entrepreneur looking for a business partner, a C-Suite executive seeking speaking opportunities, or job applicant searching for a new role, how will you stand out from the crowd? Sure, people can read your bio or scope out your LinkedIn profile, but where’s the human element? In our increasingly virtual world, video is one of the easiest and fastest ways to build your personal brand and forge engaging connections with potential clients, collaborators, and hiring managers.

That’s why we developed the Two Minute Talk, a signature component of every Own The Room Premier Event.

WHY TWO MINUTES?

After filming hundreds of talks and testing varying lengths of time, we’ve found two minutes to be optimal. It’s enough time to tell a story, share a point of view, and close with a memorable takeaway, yet it’s quick enough to catch attention and ensure that viewers watch until the end.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

After learning our methodology and building confidence in our techniques at the Premier, you’ll get the unique opportunity to apply everything you’ve learned by filming a two-minute talk in front of a live audience. Participants can speak on any topic they like; we recommend choosing a person, cause, or idea you care about so your passion and energy shines on camera. At the end of the event, you’ll have a professionally-produced video perfectly suited for your website, social media, or online portfolio. It’s a service that could cost upwards of $10,000 (think: videographer, lighting, sound, venue, etc.), but we’re proud to include it in every Own The Room Premier event.
