The Middle Managers Leadership Conference 2024 (MMC 2024) is preparing to host an exceptional Middle Managers’ Pitch Competition. This competition is designed to nurture middle managers’ skills in adaptability, courage, public speaking, and presentation.

The event is scheduled to take place on May 1 and May 2 as a highlight of the conference. It will offer all participants a platform to exhibit their leadership skills and innovative ideas.

The competition kicks off with a selection process on May 1, where all conference delegates will have an equal opportunity to present an abstract of their presentation on the topic ‘Beyond Technical Skills and into Power and Soft Skills’.

Up to five delegates will be selected on a first-come-first-serve basis to present their summaries, with live voting determining the top three finalists. This ensures a fair and transparent process, respecting the value of each participant’s contribution.

On May 2, the pitch process commences with the top three finalists presenting their ideas to a panel of judges and conference attendees. Each finalist will have 10 minutes to present, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session.The judges will evaluate the presentations at the conference. The panel includes esteemed professionals such as Cordel Williams-Graham, president of the Young Entrepreneurs Association and CEO of Transformational Life Solutions; Emru Williams, finance director of Jamaica Public Service Company; and Professor Jamie-Lee Williams, associate professor at the University College of the Caribbean. The presentations will be evaluated based on various criteria, including the accuracy of information, depth of experience, creativity, relevance to the conference theme, and adherence to time limits.

The winner of the Middle Managers’ Pitch Competition will be announced on May 2 and will receive a range of prestigious prizes, which includes a ticket to the Business & Personal Etiquette Conference in November 2024; a personal branding session with Naomi Garrick, the ‘PR Chick’; promotion as the winning speaker; and other prizes.

“We are thrilled to introduce the Middle Managers’ Pitch Competition as part of the Middle Managers Leadership Conference this year,” said Dr Jacqueline Coke-Lloyd, managing director, Make Your Mark Group.

“This competition provides a platform for middle managers to demonstrate their leadership capabilities and contribute valuable insights to the conference.”
