My Pitch To Virgin

My Pitch To Virgin

June 14th, 2016

After a few weeks of getting you glorious people to vote for us, I got the opportunity as part of a pitchathon competition run by Virgin Media Business to pitch to:

  • Jamal Edwards (SB.TV),
  • Andy Fishburn (Virgin Investment),
  • Julie Deane (The Satchel Company),
  • Peter Kelly (MD Virgin Media Business)
  • and Danielle Restivo (LinkedIn)

I’ve never pitched to people with so much influence before so I spent my days and nights practising, revising, practising some more. In the shower, as I made dinner, even as I walked home through the streets after a night out (I got a few crazy looks for that).

We were given 3 minutes to pitch and then 5 minutes to answer questions, everyone was friendly and welcoming.
From the pitcher point of view – we were all in the same boat. A lot of nerves, some alcohol and plenty of VOOM!

Unfortunately we didn’t make it through to the semi-final but I enjoyed the experience and learnt a lot from it, giving me the confidence to start pushing forward for investment with Social Savanna and look to the future with my dream.

The video below is the end result 🙂 I think I did well even if nerves did get the better of me and you’ll definitely be seeing more from me in the future 🙂

Let me know what you think!
