In a certain organization especially if you need to get a certain kind of thing done right so let’s.

Say we need to pull together a social media team well okay well then.

We need to target sort of 20-somethings who sort of spread across.

The organization and can represent different parts of the organization well who’s gonna be best to do that or we could look at the network analysis and yeah work out who’s actually super connected in that age group across departments and we could do that in a very quick way yeah that’s interesting that’s insightful as well because the people who are doing this already.

Without being told to do it often they’ll you know that’s the character trait that you’re looking for oh yeah exactly great well there’s a whole bunch of other case studies in the pitch deck as well.

Can check out um let’s talk about your team as well so if.

We jump back in on the pitch deck obviously this is a key part of the story here I want to understand a bit about before we have a look at your your investors and visors as well how.
