It is tailored to each group’s needs, and is completely free of charge.

"The dragon's den was nerve-wracking, my heart was pumping.They all seemed really intimidating and intelligent. There was a panel of very intimidating women that I could tell they were all very capable, so I wanted to impress them, so it made me even more nervous. If it was like people I knew I don't think I would have been so nervous so I appreciated the rush it gave me to speak in front of them."

 "I'm grateful I went, it made me realise I’m interested in things I didn’t know I was interested in and gives me so many more skills. For example: communication, networking, and building networks. Plus, understanding how different roles work in other industries."

"My experience was very good I learnt a lot, there was a lot to take away from the dragons. It was very intimidating (the interviews), but you just learn how to push through it, say what you can and you know, not to stress."

Dinayat Chowdhury, Year 12

“It just helps with your confidence, because you’re speaking to people – a whole group of people as well – and it’s very nerve-wracking, but you can overcome it.”

Ethan Crockford, Year 11
