Bright Sparks PhD Pitch Night - AMP Amplify Festival

I approached Sally and Yvonne (Wildwon) to help me take the Amplify Festival PhD Pitch night to a whole new level in 2013. In order to raise the calibre of finalists, we wanted to attract a much larger pool of applicants, and this was the single biggest impact that they delivered, doubling the number of entries as well as expanding the diversity in the mix. They provided us with regular progress updates, a good process for quickly reviewing and short-listing the finalists and good project management in both the preparation of candidates as well as the design and execution of the event. The project was a resounding success to such an extent that we are considering making it an annual event ( its currently every two years).
