Presentation Lessons From Dragons’ Den

In the Den businesses are seeking investment in their product or service.  So what were the key presentation lessons from the first week of the 2009 series?

  1. Make sure that you demonstrate your track record when presenting
  2. Don’t take big risks when making a pitch.  Focus on presenting professionally and in a business like way
  3. Be willing to respond openly and transparently to questions
  4. Focus on building rapport and avoid conflict
  5. Be clear about the difference between a concept and a business

Yes, very good tips here. You could use most of these for job interview/presentations as well.
