Description of Challenge
People have great ideas and projects in their minds and head. And when they start
talking about it.... it sometings sounds silly, strange or just not clear. It is a big gap from
thinking to speaking. This gap can be filled with practice and effort.
“If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter.” Blaire Pascale
Presenting your project is a great tool for many things:
● It helps you become more clear within yourself because you have to think
about what you want to tell
● You can get great feedback from others and learn
● It is an important part in giving birth to your project: by talking the world starts to
see it. So do it.
This can be done in many ways (and is a fine art) here are some:
● create a poster (with premaid topics) and speak about that in front of one
person, a group or an audience
● let people create a marketspace with their projects: the participants go around
and ask each other questions
● do an elevator pitch: you have 12 minutes to tell another person/audience
about your project
● make a pecha kucha: 20 slides, 20 seconds each. And off we go.
