The first round of the workshop was focused on three personal aspect as who are you, what are you doing and why are you doing this? The question asked were “who or what do you need? Round 2 was about giving feedback, but also making connection within the group. If you tell the group what you need, maybe there's someone who can help you.

Sharktank pitch

All the workshops, guest lecturers can be used as inspiration to complete the presentation. Malumba (actor, coach, theatre) was invited to give the participants feedback as preparation for their pitch. Malumba gave the participants a lot practical advice; make sure your pitch has a beginning, middle and an end. Make the product a part of yourself. If you are a dancer then the public would like to you see as a dancer. You should also appear as a dancer, if you want the audience to really believe it. If you're a photographer, you present in pictures.
