We know that there are a lot of things to keep in mind when starting your business, especially when it comes to pitching your idea to a panel. That's why we have listed some useful considerations below that can help get your mind ticking if you're thinking of applying to enter the Swan's Den.
- Don't rush - allow the panel time to take in what you are saying
- Stick to time- in your pitches, you will be allocated 10 minutes to present your business idea
- Pause and breathe
- Speak clearly
- Let your enthusiasm for your idea show
- Be prepared to answer questions from the panel
