  Elevator Speech Challenge
March 15, 2017

An elevator speech is a clear, brief message or “commercial” about you. It communicates who you are and what you have to offer. It's typically about 30 seconds, the time it takes people to ride from the top to the bottom of a building in an elevator.

Below is my Richmond CA elevator speech. It has 150 words and can be recited in 30 seconds. Can you write a better one? How would you describe your Richmond? Take up the Richmond CA Elevator Speech Challenge today!

Richmond is a waterfront city of 110,000 on the east shore of San Francisco Bay, five miles north of Berkeley. In WWII, Richmond had the largest and most productive shipyards in the world, proudly celebrated today by the Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historical Park. Richmond is one of the most  racially and ethnically diverse cities in the Bay Area and has one of the most progressive city governments in California. Richmond has an unusually mild climate, more miles of Bay shoreline and more miles of San Francisco Bay Trail than any other Bay Area city. Richmond enjoys access to thousands of acres of regional parks, much of which is on the waterfront. Richmond’s economic advantage is based on its affordability, its central location in the Bay Area and its access to multimodal water, rail, transit, bus and freeway transportation.

Richmond CA – Bay Front. Home Front. Out Front.
