Today Ben and I got some coaching on presentation skills. This was mainly for Ben’s benefit given he’s delivering our demo day pitch, but is also hugely beneficial for me. I’ve got a number of talks lined up over the next couple of months, including one tomorrow.
Ben is now spending a huge amount of time writing and rewriting the script for demo day, which is why he ended up round our flat tonight. I cooked (Pad Thai with cashews, and a side of spicy prawns for the carnivores), Ben pitched, and we all agonised over wording, order, and structure.
Given the way the coaching works we – and by we I mean Ben – need something that is close to the final script as possible by next week. I can see every night being pitch practice. I may be doing a fair bit of cooking.
