G8 IDU Design / I&S: CEO

Role and Goal

To lead and support your team to oversee the preparation for your team’s pitch.  
 
You need to coordinate everyone and make sure everything runs smoothly. You should be focused with productivity, planning, and coordinating the team. You are responsible for organising a lot of the logistics that go behind the preparation of the pitch. This can range from organising meetings, supporting and managing your team,  
 
You need to make sure that everyone working meets the deadlines that are set and communicate with each other at the right time. You will also need to make sure that they have everything that they need.  
 
You need to make sure that everyone knows what they are supposed to be doing and when they are supposed to be doing it. You should be well organised and work hard to have good interpersonal skills. You will need to have a way of keeping tabs on 'who needs to do what' and that needs to be something that can be updated and shared digitally  
 
To put it simple you are the boss and your team depends on you to have organised all of the administration so that the rest of your team are able to dedicate their time to thinking about their specialist roles within the team.
