Battledecks - ROUND THREE

 

"Gesture, Flow, Credibility and Jargon"

 

  • 2 people from the crowd are chosen (by elimination or volunteering or voting...) and go head-to-head in DemoCamp's installment of BATTLEDECKS
  • Each contender is given a 6-to-8 page Keynote Presentation on the spot and will present their fabulous, ground-breaking, earth-shattering, mind-blowing business/project/idea/nonsense to the crowd, inspiring us all on whatever it is they are revealing.
  • Think: "Gesture. Flow. Credibility. Jargon." It will really help.
  • Winner will be professed by crowd applause and cheering.
  • Prizes may be awarded, but bragging rights is the ultimate goal.

 

We need Battle Decks created as well as presented, so start polishing your decks.


 

Suggestions
