BarCamp Session Pitching

Leave a comment

October 21, 2010 by Garrison Locke

If you’ve never been to a BarCamp event before, you’ll find that the process of creating the schedule is different from a typical conference.  What will happen is everyone who is interested in speaking will get about 15 seconds to “pitch” their session topic to everyone.  The person will write the title of their session on a piece of paper, which will then be affixed to the wall.  Once everyone who wants to speak has pitched their ideas, all the attendees will place a tally mark on the sessions they are most interested in.  From that point, we’ll create the official schedule and you can decide which presentations you want to hear. If you’re interested in speaking (and we hope you are!) be prepared with a very short elevator-style pitch about your presentation.  If you can, please add your session idea and a little blurb about it on our sessions wiki page at http://barcamp.org/BarCampRDUsessions. Here are three key things to remember for creating a successful and effective pitch

  • Keep it short
  • Keep it simple
  • Keep it to the point
