A recruiting speech or recruiting pitch was a type of speech given in order to attract new recruits to an organization.

In 2151, when questioned by Travis Mayweather as to whether he ever considered doing something other than running freight, Matthew Ryan surmised he was referring to joining Starfleet. He asked Mayweather, "Was this premeditated? Buy me lunch and give me the recruiting pitch?" Mayweather denied it, but cited Ryan's experience in space as a potential asset. (ENT: "Fortunate Son")

In 2376, eager to cut to the chase when Tom Paris was attempting to justify his and Harry Kim's exploration of the Markonian outpost by citing Starfleet's mandate, Kathryn Janeway told him to "Skip the recruiting speech. You were looking for a bar." (VOY: "Survival Instinct")
