Caroline Beckett, Busch ’23, was recognized by Gartner as a top-ten finalist for their NCSC Speed Selling Competition. 98 competitors from over 46 universities were nominated by their professors to join the event.
The competition involved 2 rounds: the first was an elevator pitch where students were asked to introduce themselves and give an overview of their experience. Judges, recruiters and sales associates at Gartner selected the top 10 students to advance to the second round. In the second round, students were given 3 minutes to pitch a product to a CEO of a fictional company.
In Caroline's own words:
“This year I was honored to represent The Catholic University of America by participating in Gartner’s NCSC Virtual Speed Selling Competition and placing within the Top Ten finalists. I was given the opportunity and resources to learn about Gartner’s products and present myself to Gartner’s team through an elevator pitch competition and role play scenario. Ultimately, Gartner’s NCSC competition allowed me to build upon my sales skills and develop connections with leaders within a successful industry-leading company.” - Caroline Beckett, The Busch School of Business Sales Program Ambassador
