Thanks to all of you who came yesterday to the pre-event. The atmosphere was great and workful. Palo Stacho gave us helpful advices to pitch efficiently. He presented us two methods: the "6Ps" defined by Daniel Priestley and the "Intrigue method" by Sam Brown. Here are some takeaways from the evening:

- Show that there is a problem you want to solve

- Use simple words that you can easily remember

- Try to make an impact with an emotional touch

- Keep it short (on Friday, you will have only 60 seconds to convince the audience)

- Mention the type of skills that you need at the end (developer, designer, business)

- Practice, practice, practice!

Thanks again to Palo and our host from Evernote!

Best of luck for Friday!
