Last friday,(24/02/12) my group and I made our presentation on Ben Kaufman and his journey to Quirky. We had spent many hours researching the company, getting in touch with Ben, and rehearsing the presentation so that it would keep the audience’s attention. We were quietly confident on the day while watching the other groups present about entrepreneurs from their own specialist subjects, but being the last group to present caused a few nerves between us. Everyone did a great job speaking on their parts, however technology was out to get us, so we suffered a minor hiccup with one of the slides which was quickly sorted. We received a lot of questions at the end of our presentation which suggests the audience were very interested in our research!
One slide in particular that kept the audiences attention was the live video feed of Quirky’s board meeting which we were able to tune into, get a mention and ask Ben some questions. The whole project has been a fantastic success and a great start in creating links and contacts in the design industry around the world!
Here is the link to the video feed of the board meeting with our questions.
