Talks pitching your product, startup, or business will be automatically rejected. It's ok to tell your story, provided it's not centered on selling something.
Talk about something you invented, or your latest nerd obsession, or how you did something really hard.
Tell a story about a trip you took, a lesson you learned, or a loss you experienced.
Share a secret, or your insider knowledge, or your X number of steps to Y.
The possibilities are endless. JUST DON'T BE PITCHY.
