'Dragons Den is a fantastic experience and one I wouldn't have missed for the world. The journey of turning an initial 'No' into a 'Yes' for being accepted for the show and the actual filming was physically, mentally and emotionally challenging, as well as extremely exciting!
The coaching I received from the PDG team really helped get me in the right frame of mind and put together a presentation that brought on board two of the dragons. Thanks for putting us on the right path'
