    There is so much involed in creating an effective pitch. From point of view of the presenter to the esthetics to how you present it (in person, recording, email etc). Story telling is a great way getting the attention of potential funders/supporters. We used 4 stories to apparoch a providing a comfort measure to people in wheel chair needing public transportation in the winter. This was my favorite part of the program. Bringing all the organized chaos to an attractive presentaion promoting a need for change.

    It can be difficult to talk openly about an individualist viewpoint. Furthermore, it is the strength that reveals our potential for incompetence. This transitions into a period of reflection. At the same time, the concept might serve as a goal for a fresh strategy or a concept that the entire society will consider.

    I realised how important it is to communicate your views to others since they might be able to bring about the change we want to see in the neighbourhood. Along with your own, it's crucial to get everyone's ideas and opinions, as those could influence how you improve the idea. I discovered that we can all try to alter the community by sharing our opinions. Additionally, it is better to have other people's opinions and thoughts added on top of your own.

    I discovered how crucial storyboard planning can be and how many different elements go into crafting a compelling narrative that many readers can relate to. The significance of crafting a message that people can broadly and intensely connect with will stay with me. This will help me share my ideas publicly with confidence and without fear of failure, which will help me as a future changemaker.

    I have learned that everyone has ideas and the more that we share our thoughts and ideas the greater chance we have at making change. Sharing your ideas can be scary and vulnerable, however, it takes courage and collaboration with others to take an idea and build upon it. This process has confirmed for me that change-making is a path I am meant to be on.

    We learned how to effectively express our thoughts by sharing stories during the Pecha-Kucha presentation that we participated in. The abilities to give a presentation and engage in casual conversation, which are both necessary to make a presentation engaging, are important talents that will be useful in the future.

    By disclosing our ideas to the world, we leave ourselves up to diverse viewpoints, views, and recommendations on the idea. By adding the elements that could have been overlooked, it might aid in further developing the concept. The Pecha-Kucha pitch presentation taught us how to better communicate our ideas via storytelling.

    It is wonderful to get the opportunity to showcase our views. It also helps us improve our communication skills, and most significantly, it allows us to share our views and ideas on a public platform. It aids in the comprehension of various ideas and points of view, which eventually aids in the comprehension of the subject matter.

    About its presentation, I gained a lot of knowledge. These are incredibly practical tips for academic work as well as upcoming employment. We also get a lot of feedback whenever we share our ideas on a public platform, which I believe is crucial for everyone to know their weaknesses and strengths. The above feedback is also crucial for every SSW going forward. It also helps us get better at communicating, and most importantly, it helps us improve our teamwork. Realizing some concepts might be extremely hard at times. But, in my view, everyone can appreciate our thoughts if they are stated quickly and clearly.

    I learned a lot about how to present a product. For example, the font, the pictures, and the length of the presentation. These are very useful tips, for school works/ future work as well.

    Sharing our ideas publicly really helps us to build a confident and also got to know our ability and our strength and got to know everyone's idea and perspective towards this project. Basically, it help us to enhance our communication skills too and the most importantly every time we share our thoughts and ideas in public platform, we get a lot of feedback on it which i think is very important for everyone to know their mistakes and their strength which is also very important for every SSW in future.

    sharing our ideas publicly can be very nerve racking and show a sense of vulnerability that can make you pretty uncomfortable, it can also give you good feedback and give the option of debate and gives you more opinions and perhaps you learn things you didn't know prior to you sharing your ideas. I know sometimes when I share things with my boyfriend, he educates me on things I wasn't aware of. That can be helpful for our future career choices.

    Publicly sharing our ideas helps in building self-confidence and self-esteem. It helps us in understanding different ideas and opinions, which ultimately helps in improving the understanding of the subject matter.

    Sometimes it’s very difficult to understand some ideas. But, in my view, if present properly and effectively everyone can understand our thoughts. So, if we use pechkucha we can easily define our idea in the community, and also it is making the use of pitchers and create a perfect story so, that every age group of people can easily understand easily. Moreover, everyone can give their feedback and recommendation through this and this is beneficial for the make changes in the future.

    By sharing our ideas publicly, we open ourselves to different opinions, recommendations and suggestions about the idea. It can help in further improving the idea by including the components that might have been missed. The Pecha-Kucha pitch presentation helped us to learn to present our ideas in a more effective way through storytelling.
