Hipower Session 4 - Palo Alto

NO HIPOWERITE LEFT BEHIND!  Usually by this point, participants are worried that they are falling behind.  So this is our working session - our chance to get caught up! Here's what to expect from this session:

5:45 - 7:00 - we'll go around the room and everyone has to say something about where they are on their platform

You have 1 minute to state your current version of your platform.  It can be as messy as "I spend my days doing financial analysis and the part of it I like is …, but in the end my passion since I was in college has been journalism.  I'd really love to write about how large company financial departments act as breaks instead of accelerators, but I don't know how much I have to say on the topic."

We have 4 minutes to ask questions and offer suggestions.

GOAL:  Learn from each other.  Learn about each other.  Get some feedback from people who care.

7:00 - 7:30 - I will pair you up and you need to work together to continue to refine each of your platforms.  That gives you 15 minutes each completely focused on your own goals.

7:30 - 8:00 - Rewrite your bio!

Bring your current bio in hardcopy or on your computer.

I'll break you up into 3's.  I want you to each redraft your bio's and ask each other questions about how to phrase different sentences given your platform or its current direction.

GOAL:  You leave with a better bio!
