Why does the event consist of interviewers instead of speakers?
Most events only have speakers. Speaker-focused events will allow you to learn from others and take notes on strategies you can use later. This event goes one step above the typical speaking event. Interviewers are included to give you immediate feedback that you can use to improve your communication. If you don’t sign up to receive feedback, you’ll get to watch a LIVE evaluation of pitches that others are doing. How often do you receive feedback on how others perceive you?
