How Skill Swap Works
Instead of throwing in $10, everyone donates a skill. Something they are good at.
There were 10 of us, so 10 skills were swapped.
The donated skills are listed publicly so people can browse the list during the tournament and learn more about their colleagues.
Seth offered Canadian Style canoe paddling lessons (called Omering).
Emily offered guitar lessons.
Al offered a comprehensive fitness and nutrition audit and consultation.
Susan offered to design an e-book.
Jon offered kayaking lessons.
Becca offered a “Day with Becca” personalized guided tour of Manhattan.
Alex offered to teach exactly how to make his famous melted ginger scallion sauce. (similar recipe here)
Ishita offered a personal coaching session on conquering fears in business.
Allan offered to teach someone how to read and build a cap table.
I offered to cook a 4 course home-cooked meal.
After the tournament, instead of winning money, the winner of the office pool gets to choose first from the donated skills. Second place gets second choice, and so on.
