The pitch. Throughout the weekend you are building up to this big pitch. The closer pitch time comes, the more nervous you become. Before going up, 5 mins seemed like a long time, but once you are up there, it feels like you don’t have enough time. It showed me you really need to hone in your pitch, to ensure you get everything you need to over to the judges. Because if you don’t, it could be that one vital piece that they miss and means you either win or loose. The feeling after the speech is a bit like emptiness, all this built up nerves and anxiety is suddenly dropped, and you don’t know where to go from there. It’s important then to take a step back and enjoy the rest of the night and other pitches. And perhaps learn things they did well that you might have missed on.
