The PTDA Foundation is...

the charitable arm of PTDA championing education, outreach and PT WORK Force® initiatives relevant to the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry.

Help Me Explain What I Do

Word-of-mouth or referrals from current employees are the most powerful recruitment tool. Do you have difficulty explaining what you do for a living to students, parents or career changers? Power transmission/motion control distributors and manufacturers do so much in the course of a day, it can be challenging to explain to others, especially without no prior knowledge of the field.

PT WORK Force® is making it easier to explain what you do so others are able to say “Ah, now I get it" with four “one-minute conversation starters” (based on who you’re talking to) to help explain what you do.

Click on the group you will be talking to below.

Each conversation starter is approximately one-minute long when spoken. Use these as they are OR adapt to your own style. The words highlighted within each one are what is important to that specific audience. Change the wording so you are comfortable with what you are saying. Make it your own!

If you have any suggestions on how to explain power transmission/motion control distribution to those who may not know anything about the field, please send them to foundation@ptda.org.
