From Sir Tom Hunter’s Private Office
Dougie made it along to the Princes Scottish Youth Business Trust’s Elevator networking night last week. An integral part of the networking night is the ‘elevator’ pitch competition. The challenge is to deliver a compelling sell of your business to an important client in under 30 seconds, the time of your journey in the lift.
Sir Tom Hunter, Scotland’s first billionaire and all round sound man, made a surprise appearance as the judge of the competition. Dougie’s pitch for 14c Film impressed and Sir Tom awarded him and 3 other PSYBT backed business a £50 USC voucher. This was a much needed wardrobe boost for Dougie, who was also surprised and delighted to receive a hand written letter from Sir Tom with the prize.
Thanks Sir Tom!
