Default Re: Move Over Apprentice here comes the Dragons Den

Great post, Duane! Very interesting.

I, too, was astonished at the lack of preparation for the nitty-gritty that was evident in the presentations.

What I found most enlightening, however, wasn't the presentations so much as it was the follow up questions and reasonings by the Dragons.

Of great value was the follow-ups on previous presentations and what happened to the people subsequently. Not always what one would expect but telling in it's own way.

One thing that struck me was the personality thing. Despite having Dragons interested and willing to invest, several people lost out because they had bad presentation skills or abrasive personalities and so on. There's all the evidence one needs to know that, more than 'working on your business idea' you need to FIRST work on yourself and develop your 'winning personality'.

Thanks for sharing, Duane. Now if I watched television....(I haven't in years) that'd be a 'don't miss' program for sure.
