Description

Strangers have stopped me on the street to ask, "Kym, how do you craft the perfect pitch?"

No, they haven't really. But if they did, I would probably say:

You don't need to do it a gazillion times to get it right.

Just get it wrong often enough.

So you know how NOT to do it next time around.

Or you can take this class.

Sure, a few people might think our stint in Shark Tank this year was just a tad less than stellar. (Okay, so we got decimated. See it immortalised in the video below.) But all in all, based on most standards...

We think we've done pretty fricking great (we've gotten tons of love from the press, too)!

In this course, we share some of the insights we've gained from doing pitch after pitch after pitch: How to do it, how not to do it, and everything in between.

Topics include:

  • How to get the message right
  • Our shotgun approach to startup competitions (Hint: Apply like there's no tomorrow!)
  • How to create a compelling presentation
  • How to own the stage and overcome stage fright
  • How to run a brutal but constructive post-show debriefing
  • How to have a blast throughout the entire process

As we always say, life is short; take this damn course. See you soon.

It was one afternoon when one of the Founders, Kym Huynh, called Angie Chong of The Humble Dumpling, just to have a conversation. It had been an intense start to 2017 and just shy of 3 months, Kym wanted to connect again with what brought him inspiration, joy and fulfilment - the people and companies that he works with.

For him that day, inspiration came in the form of Angie Chong. By some wonderful stroke of serendipity, Angie shared an inspiring excerpt from the book “The Last Chinese Chef” by Liang Wei. For Kym, the words were both beautiful and moving, and created a fundamental and tectonic shift. These words would later lay the foundation for the launch of the WeTeachMe Pop-Up School.

“Apprentices have asked me, what is the most exalted peak of cuisine? Is it the freshest ingredients, the most complex flavors? Is it the rustic, or the rare? It is none of these. The peak is neither eating nor cooking, but the giving and sharing of food. Great food should never be taken alone. What pleasure can a man take in fine cuisine unless he invites cherished friends, counts the days until the banquet, and composes an anticipatory poem for his letter of invitation?”

Angie Chong invites people into her own home to share food, so that she can pass on her heritage and knowledge. It is not only the act of sharing that is magical, but also the pleasure one can take when the bequeathed knowledge is used to leave a positive and lasting impact on cherished friends, family, and maybe - if it happens enough - our communities, and one day, the world.

And so the classes, workshops and courses, where we invite the best and most influential people in the world to present at, act as a conduit to pass on knowledge and heritage to a willing and mindfully curious audience. It’s an invitation that brings together people who believe in the the idea of sparking an eagerness to learn, so that together, we can propel a tidal wave of transformation that impacts not only on our own lives, but the lives of those who surround us, and then our communities.

Hence, each booking page is more than just a place where you can register your interest. It is an anticipatory poem in the guise of an invitation. When you claim your ticket, it’s an anticipation that the learning experience is set, the classroom is ready, and that the experience will be great. And best of all, that you’re going to be sitting next to people who are just as eager about learning and curious about life as you are.

It is a surprising thing. A surprising feeling. And it appeals to the human need to learn, to share, and to experience.
