Imagine you only have 60 seconds to make a powerful first impression. You need to capture your audience's attention quickly or lose them forever. The Sydney Catalyst Perfect Pitch Competition is a great chance to refine your elevator pitch and describe your research skills and experience to a virtual audience and a panel of judges in 60 seconds.

Monday, 15 June 2020
10am - 11.30am

Virtually via Zoom

The competition will be hosted by the vivacious Dr Heather Shepherd and judged by a panel of cancer researchers. Pesentations will be judged on presentation skills and ability to concisely pitch yourself.

FIRST PRIZE = $100 Booktopia voucher
RUNNER UP = $50  Booktopia voucher

What should your elevator pitch contain?

  • A "hook" - open your pitch by getting the person's attention with a "hook"
  • A statement or question that piques their interest to want to hear more
  • Keep it short - your pitch should go no longer than 60 seconds
  • Demonstrate energy and dedication about your research
  • A request - at the end of your pitch, you must ask for something. For example, their email address, a future meeting, collaboration, or a business card.
  • Be creative!

Registration is also open to members wishing to attend without presenting.
