For the third year in a row, we are delighted to be hosting the final of the Digital Communications Knowledge Transfer Network (http://www.dcktn.org.uk/) competition for places on the UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) stand at Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, February 2011.
The judges have selected 10 SMEs which entered the competition to go forward to the next stage at this event. These companies will be given three minutes to make a 'pitch' to a panel of judges. Each pitch will be given without the use of PowerPoint charts, but otherwise in whatever form the presenter thinks appropriate. At the end of each pitch there will be up to seven minutes for the judges to question the presenter.
After the pitches, a buffet supper will be provided with drinks to provide an opportunity for networking and, in particular, for the ten companies to say more about their products and solutions using A1 posters that they will be invited to produce and bring with them. These presentations will not form part of the judging process, but are to enable the ten companies to let a wider audience know more about their product or solution (and to give them some practice – whoever gets a place to exhibit will need to hone their elevator pitch). Once the judges have reached their decision, the winners will be announced. The evening will then continue to provide a further opportunity for networking.
The Digital Communications Knowledge Transfer Network organises these events to facilitate collaboration and the exchange of knowledge in the Digital Communications community. Keep up to date with the work of the Digital Communications KTN by becoming a member. Membership of the Digital Communications KTN is free, and attendees are very much encouraged to register as members at http://www.dcktn.org.uk/. It’s worth it – there’s all kinds of access to resources and information that SMEs will find useful.
