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!
