Super Mario Odyssey Release Event27th October – 28th October '17
After the game's launch the night before, I assisted in a nationwide release event for Super Mario Odyssey, a widely-acclaimed Nintendo Switch title. This exercised many of my softer skills - particularly, channeling my natural enthusiasm for the game into effective marketing. Across the 14 hours of work in that weekend, Kendal and I were tasked with selling to a wide variety of consumers, primarily parents. The vast majority of people we spoke to had little personal interest in the Switch console or knowledge of it, so it was necessary to focus my knowledge and experience into much a much simpler case that could connect with the consumer. This was an enjoyable experience that improved my social confidence.
