Midnight on Friday, Nick Demey from The Board of Innovation direct messaged me on Twitter, asking if I could review two student presentations as part of 24 Hours of Innovation. The assignment had been to advance 3 new automotive concepts based on business models from the music/entertainment business.
One presentation was from a US team, the other from a Belgian team. I’d recommend taking a look at both. Pay particular attention to three lessons on presenting new ideas demonstrated by the Belgian students:
- They show their mindmap – great for highlighting the transformative variables and range of ideas considered.
- A single slide upfront contained short descriptions of all three concepts – a helpful reference to understand what was coming.
- Each business model concept featured both text and visual representations – this provided a deeper sense of the concepts.
We can all learn from these techniques that make a document more likely to receive executive review. Thanks Nick for allowing me to participate in this hour of the 24 Hours of Innovation!
