You have a team that works perfectly together, an insightful understanding of the case, and brilliantly devised and justified strategies - but without a stellar presentation, you’re like an artist who never sets brush to canvas, or a scientist whose discoveries remain in his head. The world (the judges) needs to know what you’ve been working on.



Have the above rules and criteria somewhere in your line of sight as you create your presentation. Keep your entire presentation focused.

Be confident

No one will believe your ideas if you don’t believe them yourself.

Make a good first impression

Although judging does not officially start until you begin your presentation, it’s a good idea to make a good first impression on the adjudicators by introducing yourselves to them as you enter, in line with good consulting practice.

Simplify your slides

Make slides visual and clean. Since your first submission is purely online and you cannot explain more, it will be easy to overload your slides with text. Please only use paragraphs when absolutely necessary, if not, use dot points, tables, graphs, etc.

Appendices can be as long as you want

This is where we can gauge your team’s dedication and effort. As per judging criterion 5 above, we want to see all the recommendations justified. Reminder that we can tell if you mindlessly buff up your appendices; it will detract from the actual relevant research you did.

Practice, practice, practice!

Your whole team should run through the presentation, top to bottom, at least twice. Who is changing the slides as another member talks? Are you safe time-wise? Don’t be afraid to assume an objective perspective and critique each other. Winning tip: come up with a list of likely questions the judges will ask and practice the Q&A with each other.
