Panel Judging guidance

Chris Martin will chair the panel.

Participants have been told, if you want to impress the judges:

  • Clear connection to Covid effort, & “You snooze, you lose”!
  • All in it together
  • How well is the patient’s perspective understood
  • Potential for large scale impact, Integrated care, services in the community, financial savings, backlog tsunami
  • Awyr Las funding is only available in BCUHB

 

In Advance

Prepare your Pitch

YOU MAY NOT USE POWERPOINT.

YOU WILL HAVE 2 MINUTES TO PITCH.

WE WILL CUT YOU OFF AT TWO MINUTES (HARSH BUT TRUE)

GET PATIENTS TO JOIN YOUR TEAM (if you can)

Prepare your pitch… You should seek to endear yourself to the audience by clearly articulating your challenge, making your pitch sharp, crisp, and entertaining.   I suggest:

  • Start with your Name and who you are
  • What is your challenge
  • Why your challenge is important
  • Why come to work with me
  • What I need from other people…e.g. skills, enthusiasm, knowledge

A very long time ago, an old Greek bloke said the key to human influence, or engaging an audience, is found in the three modes of persuasion:

Ethos     – demonstrating trustworthiness through action

Pathos   – understanding the humanity of the situation

Logos     – being able to articulate meaning to engage others

 

Day 1 – 14 May

Pitches will start at about 19:10

You have TWO minutes to pitch – I will hold you to two minutes

Your objective is to get the audience (Industry/ University/ Developer/ Data Analyst/ Designer/ Informatics people) to want to work with you

You cannot use Powerpoint

After the pitches, the organisers will move you to a breakout room.  We will give your breakout room a number on the day based on the order in which you pitch.

The audience (Industry/ University/ Developer/ Data Analyst/ Designer/ Informatics people) will be invited to join you.

To help chivvy things along all participants should update their name on Zoom to show:

–       Name

–       Organisation

–       Skills / knowledge / super power

You can do this by right clicking on your video and selecting ‘rename’.

The audience will join and leave your room throughout the rest of the event.

You will have a facilitator in your room.  They will be the one wearing a hat!

The facilitator’s role is to answer questions and help where they can.

The organisers will try to encourage people to come to your room – but we can’t force them!

Your role is to form a team of collaborators.  Your team will work with you to prepare a solution/proposal by Day 2 on 20 May.

In addition to the pitch specific breakout rooms there will be an audience/collaborator breakout room.  You may navigate to this other room I you wish.

If you have colleagues taking part it may be worth splitting up to see what else is going on.

The organisers (that’s me and the hat wearing facilitators) will help you find the people you need.

Remember that you have until the presentations on 20 May to form a team.

 

Question and Answer Sessions

Zoom Links for the Q&A Sessions are on:

15 May            15:00 – 16:00              https://swanseauniversity.zoom.us/j/98294268036                                                             Meeting ID: 982 9426 8036

20 May            15:00 – 16:00

These unimaginatively named sessions are to do exactly what it says on the tin!

They are also intended as a way of finding collaborators, joining new teams, and finding skills for your team that you don’t have.

You do not need to register.  Just click on the link and join.

ONLY JOIN THE QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSIONS IF YOU WANT TO!

 

Preparing for Day 2

More Networking, Forming Teams, and getting on with it.

Now’s the time to get on with some real work.

Develop solutions to your operational or clinical challenge.

Remember that teams might be dynamic.  In other words, they may change over time and you may find that people will be a part of couple of teams.

Prepare your presentation… You should seek to endear yourself to the audience by clearly articulating your challenge, making your pitch sharp, crisp, and entertaining.

YOU MAY USE POWERPOINT to present

You have SIX MINUTES IN TOTAL.

I recommend that you keep your presentation to less than 2 minutes.  This will give the panel time to ask questions.  In other words, you take up all the time guessing what the panel will be interested in or you can give them time and let them ask!

IF YOU ARE USING POWERPOINT, WE WILL ASK YOU TO SHARE YOUR SCREEN WHEN IT’S TIME FOR YOUR PRESENTATION.

 

Day 2 – 20 May

Presentations will start at about 19:05.

The Judging Panel is Chaired by Bevan Commissioner Chris Martin.

Participant teams will have 2 minutes to present their solution.

The panel, will have 4 minutes to ask questions.

After all the presentation the panel will retire to a breakout room to make decisions.  We will set aside 30 minutes for the panel to deliberate.

During this time participants will be able to vote for their favourite solutions using Zoom poll, talk amongst themselves, or make a cup of tea or something.

Decisions will be made based on the guidance referenced above

The winners will be announced at about 20:30.  This exact time will depend on the number of presentations.
