OTTUMWA — Melissa DeLay, a keynote speaker, challenged Ottumwa Leadership Academy students and Ottumwans to redefine leadership at Leadership NOW conference.
DeLay focused on the importance of elevator pitches, different forms of communication and LinkedIn connections. The elevator pitches are short statements about what a person can bring to a company. She said attendees should time their statements because of short attention spans, stating “a short amount of time could go a long way.”
