Teambuilding: The Pitch
In this creative and challenging event, providers worked with suppliers on teams that were required to create, market and pitch a product or service to a Hospital. At the end of the event, everyone gets to see highlights from all teams’ pitches. But the teams at the top of the scoreboard are invited to pitch their product to their peers. The group then uses the technology within the app to vote for their favorite team in an exciting finale that has teams on the edge of their seats!
