BAEM students receive high praise from Exhibition News Dragons Den

Edward Burton and Callum Roberts were recently chosen to present their event idea to the Exhibition News Dragon Den.

The pitch was in front of 6 of the most influential professionals in the event and exhibition industry as well as an auditorium full of guests.

Callum and Edward received great feedback during their presentation and also received an email from the editor of Exhibition Magazine saying

“Your pitch was definitely the most polished of the day and you really impressed the Dragons.”

Callum commented that he felt that the International Event Management bid that all students have to do in final year of the event management degree really helped them in the process:

“We feel that because of it we knew how to pitch and were not nervous in being passionate and showing emotion which we were later praised for.

As a student it’s great when something you practice at University translates into the ‘real world’ and we went in feeling confident after the assignment, especially after a tough grilling from Matt we knew we were prepared for the curve ball questions!”

After their presentation, Callum and Edward were approached by several of dragons who wanted to progress their idea and they event received a few job offers!!
Well done to the boys!
