“Did you enjoy it?” Not really.
Would I do it again? Absolutely!
On Friday and Saturday @matteo_uguzzoni held the first ever Masterclass at the Reef, a new kind of coliving and coworking space run by Edgeryders.
When Matteo told us that you need 40 hours to produce a solid pitch presentation, I was sceptical at first. After working our way through a number of practical exercises to develop pitches for our individual projects, I can see why.
@alberto , @noemi , @matthias and I each picked one different edgeryders project each to work on. Some are under wraps. My own is Edgeryders consultancy services. The more clients we can secure, the more money we have to support members’ personal and professional development (e.g. through high quality Masterclasses :))
The process of building a solid presentation was broken down into a series of steps. Each one described through a series of videos. Then, an excercise through which we developed that skill. By the end we had a complete first version of our presentation, and recieved two rounds of feedback.
So what did we get out of the two days?
For me it was getting help to build a a pitch for something I really believe in, but struggle to describe well. I also got some valuable questions
How about you? Leave a thoughtful comment to help us move the learning forward!
