Dragons' Den Success, from Pitch to Profit by Duncan Bannatyne

Dragons' Den Success, from Pitch to Profit


Dragons' Den Success, from Pitch to Profit by Duncan Bannatyne

4 million people watch the Dragons on TV, now they can read their book. Britain's best loved business brains - Duncan Bannatyne, Deborah Meaden, Peter Jones, Theo Paphitis and Richard Farleigh along with economics expert and presenter Evan Davies - divulge the secrets of their success in this essential read. Joining them is James Caan, a new addition to the team in Series 5 which aired in September 2007. James is a multi-millionaire businessman and entrepreneur specialising in human resources consultancy and outsourcing. Here, for the first time, you can read his story and learn from his experiences. Plus you will find out exactly what James was looking forward to seeing in the Den. Success, From Pitch to Profit is packed with advice for you, whether you want to perfect your pitching skills, develop an idea or make more money. By looking back at the previous series of Dragons' Den, the Dragons will teach you how to develop an idea to its maximum potential, making you and your business reach new heights of success. They will look at what's become of the contestants who entered the Dragons' Den. Some went away empty handed but have since become very successful. Others won the backing of the Dragons but failed to make their dream come through. The Dragons will use these case studies to show you what should have been done, what should have happened next and how you too could win their backing and become a business success. This paperback edition includes all new case studies from Series Five. This is much more than a TV series companion. It is a solid business read with never-before-heard advice and personal experiences from the Dragons own business ventures. Between them, they have a wealth of knowledge and business acumen which they will exclusively divulge for the first time. At last, we'll find out how they became millionaires, their secret business tactics, what drives them and what they would do if they entered the Dragons' Den. This is a unique, accessible and fascinating business read straight from the Dragons' Den.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
