Powerpoint Karaoke MAPpy Hour

Do you enjoy karaoke, but wish it involved less singing and more slide decks? Are you able to sound knowledgeable about practically any topic? Then we have the business networking event for you!

The Dominion Energy Innovation Center (DEIC) and Market Ashland Partnership (MAP) invite you to enjoy an evening full of skill-building and networking at our quarterly Powerpoint Karaoke MAPpy Hour.

 

Happy Hour: 4-5pm

Karaoke: 5-7pm

 


In PowerPoint Karaoke, participants are challenged to take the stage and deliver a five minute presentation based on slides they’ve never seen before. Instead of singing power ballads, participants will need to make sense of random slides, and connect it to an assigned theme.

The rules are fairly simple:

1) The presenter cannot see the slides before presenting;

2) The presenter delivers each slide in succession without skipping slides or going back; and

3) The presentation ends when all slides are presented, or after 5 minutes (whichever comes first).

4) The presenter has up to 3 additional minutes to answer any follow up questions from the audience.

5) The audience will score each presenter and winners will be announced at the end of the event.

Do I Have To Present?

No, you can attend just to network and laugh at strangers, or bring friends and convince them that presenting is a good idea.

Want to pitch?

Register here, then sign-up as a presenter at the time of the event. We will draw names of presenters just before starting at 5pm.
