After the elevator pitch training from SEE outlined in the blog post Workshop 2, part 1 – training on how to do a video elevator pitch, we did some exercises to put these skills into practice.
Participants got into pairs and spent 10 minutes discussing content of pitch based on preparation and tips from the elevator pitch training. They then put these tips into practice, presenting their pitch to their partner without video. The pairs then gave feedback to each other on their pitch, using the criticism sandwich of one positive comment, one area for improvement, concluding with another positive comment.
They then took a one minute video of each other presenting the pitch.
We then watched some of these pitches on the screen.
In our third, and final, workshop we held a peer evaluation session where we looked at the videos that had been produced before and after the training, and compared them. See Workshop 3 – Peer feedback on the before and after videos.
