Advantages Reality TV that encourages entrepreneurship and adds value to the world.
Disadvantages The often scathing and barbaric remarks
As professional and respected as I like to be perceived, I hide a secret which I will reveal once only.... I watch Reality TV! Yes, I do watch the likes of Big Brother and X-Factor - it's official! However, my favourite genre, by far, is business related reality TV, that boasts programmes such as The Apprentice and the superbly popular Dragons Den. Dragons Den has just concluded it's fifth series on BBC2, having reformatted their line-up yet again. You will see old re-runs of Dragons Den currently on UKTV Gold and Dave.In this age of the small business, millions of people have realised that the big money comes from working for yourself and not lining the pockets of some company's owner/CEO/MD. However, in an era where most ideas have been done to death, your business needs to have either a very innovative approach to doing something that's been done to death, or a truly new and unique idea. Consequently, the business world is now populated with odd ideas, and truly bonkers people who think their truly unique, but often banal, inventions and concepts, will be the next Google. Where is the obvious place for these people to go to make their dreams goals come alive - Dragons Den!
The five business tycoons are as follows:Peter Jones - a multi-millionaire telecommunications and property tycoon who initially made his millions having started up a tennis academy at the age of 16.
Having made the pitch, these dragons will go through the process of grilling the entrepreneurs, picking holes, drilling into the finances i.e. profits and estimated profits, long term goals etc. The entrepreneur has to hold their own throughout this scrutiny, and give the dragons a strong sense of security that if they invest, they will get a significant return on their investment. When they are ready to declare their thoughts, each dragon has to decide if they are out, or if they want to invest. If they are not interested or convinced, they will utter the famous words "I'm out". If they have been won over, they will normally start "I would like to make you an offer...".
