Join us for the 2017 GRSS Summer School + Young Professional event from July 19- 21, 2017 in Arlington, Texas!  The young professional event is organized by MLA GRSS Chapter!

An elevator pitch can be one of the simplest yet most powerful tools for a researcher to network effectively with other researchers or to get your message heard by management. An elevator pitch should be short, clear, conversational, and intelligible to both non-researchers and researchers not in your niche area. It should: define who you are, describe what your research does, identify your target customers, and explain what’s unique about your research. But simply being able to craft “short” messages is not enough, it should be catered to the person you are pitching the idea to and allow them to understand and appreciate the impact and value of our research. More importantly, it’s not a sales pitch, rather an opportunity to make a good impression that will lead to a deeper dialogue about what you and your research can offer.

At this year’s GRSS Summer School (Wed-Fri, July 19-21) come and learn more about remote sensing theory and practical applications by learning from world-renowned leaders in the field. At the Young Professionals event (Fri afternoon, July 21), hone your elevator pitch skills in small teams while networking with other students, young professionals, and summer school lecturers. Each team will make their best pitch during the Networking Dinner on Friday evening in front of their fellow participants and select members of the IEEE GRSS Administrative Committee. A prize (and honor & glory) awaits the best pitch!
