I learned something today (strange, I know).  I had a meeting with a Prof. about my senior capstone presentation, and, honestly, it sounds a lot like the ‘pitching’ I’ll be doing at the conference (other than the fact that you’re not trying to sell your idea).

Really, though.  In a pitch, you have to excite the interest of your audience.  You also have to, without having them read the story, give them a pretty good understanding of how it goes.  Same principle for the senior presentation, except WAY mM&More people (in comparison to one in a pitch, the maybe eight people I’ll get for my presentation is a lot).  This really helps to put things into perspective…but it also makes my senior presentation sound a whole lot worse…

Anyway, I had no idea how much material a person needs to go into a pitch.  A single-page, single-spaced synopsis (wow, with this much formatting, you’d think it was for school!), notes (although some people frown on that), and—this is my addition—a lot of M&Ms…

Mom, if you’re wondering later what happened to that big bag of M&Ms…Yeah, that’ll be me.

  1. Yes, I’d say chocolate does solve the world’s greatest problems. But I’m not sure if it will help me with my fear of presenting. Love this post!
