Get to the Point 4th Edition

By: Richard Michie

While most people are slowing down, The Marketing Optimist are gearing up for 2024. So we are really pleased to announce the 4th Edition of Get to the Point will be held on 19th March Santander Work Cafe, Leeds!

If you’ve not come across Get to the Point before, there are three simple rules that help it stand out from other speed-presenting events you might have come across before.

  1. Each speaker has just 20 slides
  2. Each slide changes automatically after 15 seconds. We set the timing so the speaker has no control over when they change.
  3. No SALES PITCHES. This rule means that you’re never going to hear someone sell their latest software or revolutionary face cream!

To give you a flavour here’s a clip video of what happened at the last Get to the Point.

Get to the Point gives a different perspective

These rules mean that our speakers really have to focus their talks, cut out the waffle and get to the point. It engenders storytelling and makes the talks, not just interesting, but fun too.

We have 40 free tickets for the event, which if last time is anything to go by, are bound to go fast!

Do you fancy a go?

Public speaking is one of people’s biggest fears, so we understand it’s not for everyone. The audience at Get to the Point are all very welcoming and no one will judge you or pick out parts they feel are wrong. In short, if you want to do public speaking but need a safe space, then Get to the Point is a good place to begin.

To volunteer to speak fill in this Google Form and we’ll be in touch with more information.

Interested in speaking to The Optimists?

Right from the beginning of our time working with The Marketing Optimist, they’ve taken the time and effort to get to understand Sharp Consultancy as a business and not just a client. We’ve seen a huge increase in the effectiveness of our social media strategy, particularly on Linkedin and we’re delighted with the impact it’s had on the business.

It was a pleasure to work with The Marketing Optimist on this project. It felt like a true collaborative effort on the day and they made the interviewee's feel at ease whilst talking about their journey on our RISE programme. The final video was professional and engaging, we have received great feedback around the quality and creativity of the case study. Including the video in our presentation made it come to life, with real humans sharing their stories, so thank you to the Marketing Optimist!
