120-second pitch


It is scientifically proven, that people who are good communicators have increased chances of getting a job when they graduate. So you should just get started practicing presenting and communicating to ready your communication skills.


When you participate in the Green Challenge, you will have 120-seconds to present your project. It may not sound like much, but it is achievable if you are aware of how to use the time. 


What is in it for me?

Try to put yourself in the listener’s place. How do they benefit from hearing your presentation? Is there something they can use? Avoid too much introducing talk about who you are, try to take the receiver’s perspective and describe what he/she can gain from your project or idea.


Keep it simple - less is more

Avoid too complicated messages. Bring out the main points, to make it clear what your message is. 


Clinton rule

Tell people what you are going to tell them. Tell them. Then tell them what you just told them.


Be precise and clear

Avoid unclear graphs, messy tables, and pictures in low resolution. It is noisy and unprofessional if you make a presentation where the elements are hard to decipher for the receiver. 


How is your street credibility?

It's not only what you say, but also how you present yourself that counts. Make sure you show your commitment. Try to make eye contact with the people listening. Speak clearly. Think about how you stand when you make your presentation.


Practice - speak to a chair
Practice makes perfect. Like everything else in life, a good presentation is about having a routine, which makes it possible to talk freely without constantly thinking about what you say. Practice as much as possible. Speak to a mirror, a chair, your dog, cat, or hamster.
