Dear all,

As mentioned in my previous class, we will discuss about some tenets of sales pr


esentation drawn from generic presentation principles. We would be interacting o
n Monday and Tuesday on this issue.
The activity described below would be conducted on Tuesday. I suggest you to be
ready with your preparation. Very important that you do not disclose your idea w
ith other participants.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Activity:
Come to class prepared to make a knowledge gap pitch to your classmates. The goa
l is to make your classmates want to hear some information you can talk about. Y
our message should be informational,
not just a joke or a riddle or a brain-teaser. People should feel like they ve lea
rned something useful after they hear your message.
For example, here s a pitch you might deliver: People always say you can t make peopl
e pay attention, yet lots of people would love to understand how to make people p
ay attention ranging from advertisers to teachers. It turns out that conventional
wisdom is wrong you can make people pay attention. But to understand how, you need
to know a little bit about the biology of surprise and a little about uncommon
sense . . .
In your message you could talk about breaking existing schemas and illustrate wi
th the stories. But be short.
You ll make a short pitch for your idea and people will vote how much they want to
hear your message. If your pitch collects enough votes, we ll let you deliver you
r message and fill the knowledge gap (your messages should be relatively short two
minutes or so max). We ll take another vote about how satisfied people are with y
our overall message. Remember that it s easy to make people curious but harder to
close the curiosity gap in a way that leaves people satisfied with the experienc
e. So don t create curiosity gaps that you won t be able to fill.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Also, in case we encroach into our lunch time, pls be ready for it.
best wishes
