Teams may not enlist the help of any other person who has ever been employed as an investment management professional or finance faculty member in preparing content or evaluating the presentation (including, but not limited to, mock judging panels).
b. Teams may utilize presentation coaches or other public-speaking resources as long as those resources do not contribute to the content of the presentation.
