Tip of the Month

This tip of the month is for Certified Suppliers pitching to Corporates during our Match-Made-in-Five-Minutes events.

Corporate Members in the event are ready to onboard new suppliers. Here’s your chance to present a concise, clear, and creative pitch to win new business!

Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Research what products/services they purchase & what their purchasing process looks like (some helpful resources include their website, recent news articles, and business owners that have already worked with them),
  2. Determine which of your top three offerings best suit that Corporate’s needs,
  3. Write out your pitch. In essence, you should be able to say something like this: “Based on your [problem/opportunity] we can help your company [name a benefit] with our [product/service]…”, and,
  4. Practice, practice, practice!

Stay tuned for registration info and best of luck to the first 15 participants!

EY Logo

 

As an active proponent of diversity and inclusion in the workforce, EY has made its mark as an organization that attracts Neurodiverse individuals. In November 2020, EY launched its first Canadian Neuro-Diverse Centre of Excellence (NCoE) in Toronto! This marks EY’s sixth NCoE and the first in Canada, and builds on the success of centres in Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, San Jose and Nashville.

Kelly Grier, EY’s US Chair and Managing Partner and Americas Managing Partner says: “We evolved our recruiting, onboarding and training processes to meet the needs of Neurodiverse individuals. The deliberate changes allowed these talented professionals the opportunity to demonstrate their technology acumen, aptitude and interest…Because of their efforts, we have made incredible headway in the areas of artificial intelligence, automation, blockchain, cyber, data and emerging technology like virtual and augmented reality.”

This year, Kelly Grier, EY’s US Chair and Managing Partner sat for an interview with Anderson Cooper to discuss Recruiting for Talent on the Autism Spectrum. Click here to watch the video.
