Dragons on the Prowl

While Dragons' Den auditions continue across the country, (click here for the schedule, or click here to read how the auditions have been going so far), Enterprise Toronto is holding its own special event next week.
Dragon Robert Herjavec and DD host Dianne Buckner will be at City Hall from 6 pm to 8:30 pm on April 7 to talk about the "Dos and Don'ts" of asking for capital.

Sure, it's a game show, but most of the lessons apply to all of your business life, so why not come out if you're in town? I will be one of the roundtable of guest "business experts" helping people hone their pitches.

This is not an audition, but pitchers hoping to come out to the April 18 Toronto audition - or anyone working on their presentation skills - would be well advised to take advantage of free coaching.

Related notes:
* You can also audition for Dragons' Den online. (Or watch the video pitches so far.)

* I am scheduled to help out with the April 18 auditions at the CBC in Toronto, so come on down.
