As opposed to TV shows, like Dragon’s Den, Mock Boardroom isn’t just for people who want to practice pitching for investment, but also for people who want to practice presenting new policies or ideas to a room full of senior decision-makers and receive feedback from the people usually on the receiving end of those presentations on what they are doing well and how they could improve. It’s also an opportunity for audience members to ask our panel questions about what to expect and how to prepare for board-level presentations and discussions.
