Attention Grad Slam participants! Want to get a leg up on the competition? Join us for a workshop on "Crafting Your Grad Slam Pitch" with Bri McWhorter from Activate to Captivate. Bri will cover how to create content, organize your ideas, and deliver your pitch in an engaging and captivating way. This will be an interactive workshop where you will be working with other attendees on your pitch. If you can, come prepared to turn your camera and audio on.

This workshop is perfect for those participating in Grad Slam but is also useful for anyone wanting to work on their elevator pitch.
