Event Information

Calling all students, career switchers, or seasoned professionals looking to land that next promotion! Don’t miss this upcoming opportunity! Codecademy teamed up with Louis Melendez of Have Better Conversations to bring you a complimentary workshop to master your elevator pitch.

Introducing and talking about yourself can make many people queasy. We only get one chance to make a first impression - this session will help ensure you’re putting your best foot forward. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, job-seeker, or professional looking to step up your game, you can learn some best practices and get a chance to practice delivering your elevator pitch.

In the first 40~ minutes of each session, Louis will walk through the best practices and tips he’s picked up over his years of experience as a sales leader and comedy performer. The second 45 minutes is focused on practicing those skills and implementing them in our own words. Participants are encouraged to ask questions throughout the entire session. Each session occurs on two screens, with participants answering questions and prompts from their cell phones.

OUR GUEST SPEAKER & FACILITATOR

Communication coach Louis Melendez helps people find the words to get what they want — whether it’s a new job, promotion, closed deal, or improved relationship. After selling millions in digital ads at Yelp and raising millions more for charity at Charitybuzz, Louis founded Have Better Conversations to successfully teach others how to negotiate and communicate in their professional and personal lives. Also an improv and live comedy performer, Louis uses a light-hearted and candid approach to sharing tools and strategies for developing confident, human, and outcome-driven communication skills and habits.
