You can't convince a CEO in 30 seconds. You need to instead figure out what the root issue is -- is he afraid to lose revenue with your competitor, etc. You need to build a case for why the CEO should meet with you again to really dive deep.

I would quote-"In this ever evolving world, Change is constant and species need to adapt it" and give him top 3 benefits the software has over its competitors and hope it makes a change..

30 second is a small timeframe and the most you can do is open their mindset to our software..
