We then listened to a few talks on presentation and marketing yourself in the corporate world and were asked each to pitch to the room, in groups, how we would increase enthusiasm in the younger generation, especially in women, to pursue a career in engineering and within the F1 market. After this, we were taken through the experience of a business lunch and the formal setting and layout of a meeting.
