As a way to harness the growth and inspiration felt during the gala, each year we conduct morning workshops the following day to enhance participant experience! This year we’ll be offering a morning of workshops for all gala finalists starting with a continental breakfast at 8:30am and finishing with a luncheon from 12pm - 1pm. The entire morning will take place at Oulton College on May 4th.
As you know, our gala pitches are only 1 minute long with no Q&A from the judges -- we call this a Lightning Pitch. As you prepare, you’ll want to refer to our Lightning Pitch guide on our Resources page. This will help you better understand what to include in those 60 seconds. This is your only opportunity to show the judges why they should choose you and your idea.
