"Summer Camp is a series of training for accepted volunteers. The main lectures and major events for Summer Camp are open to CIE Members and UChicago students.
The major events are:
August 10th Kickoff Event: Understand how to learn skills faster, get repetitions, measure and improve your performance, dealing with nerves and pressure in whatever area comes hardest to you (it varies by person), and then being systematic once you’ve mastered the basics.
August 23rd Grand Finale: How fast is it possible to get success? How long does it take to master new skills and get over your fears? 5 minute presentations with key success stories and life lessons from participants, along with major speakers.
11AM@CIE Speaker Series: From August 11th to August 22nd, every day except the 15th/16th. These daily lectures focus on one aspect of the “Four Clusters” of GiveGetWin Skills by an expert in the field.
What You’ll Learn
The Four Clusters are —
I. “Value Creation” Cluster… because there actually is a method in the madness of creating new products, services, and experiences. R&D, Researching and Understanding Markets, Strategic Thinking and Planning, Goals, Customer Development
II. “Verbal Skills” Cluster… because humans primarily communicate through words. Outreach, sales, partnerships, negotiations, presentation skills, active listening, social/soft skills, speaking clearly, closing, etc.
III. “Distribution Skills” Cluster… because building a better mousetrap ain’t enough in a busy world; you need customers to find and buy your mousetrap too. Refining new products/services based on customer feedback and iteration, scoping, copywriting, features and benefits, collateral creation, getting distribution channels going, marketing plans, spreadsheet-style targeting, etc.
IV. “Value Delivery” Cluster… because the best customer is the repeat customer. Followthrough, followup, ensuring the win, creating great experiences, and creating customer evangelists who love to spread the word.
