In March 2014 the cycle of iDEA lab workshops took place at the Faculty of Technical Sciences, University of Novi Sad. These workshops focused on the details of a perfect elevator pitch presentation – How to sell an idea in a minute? Students had the opportunity to learn how to prepare a good elevator pitch presentation (on March 18, 2014), to discover what are the crucial elements of good elevator pitch presentations (on March 20, 2014) to work on their first impression and self-confidence (on March 25, 2014), and to find out other little but valuable secrets of successful presentations. The culmination of this cycle was the students’ competition in elevator pitch presentations. Six teams took part in this competition and offered new ideas how to solve a problem given by Puzzle tourist agency.
These workshops were advertised through several students’ facebook groups and were used to promote iDEA lab among students and offer new skills. Elevator pitch workshops were developed and delivered by assistant professors Zeljko Tekic and Petar Vrgovic.
