Recognition for my hard work pays off
2018 Event Finalist at “BRING IT TO THE BOARDROOM” Competition
“Bring it to the Boardroom” was a Ballantynes Dragons’ Den-style competition.
The competition was open to any NZ made designs or creations. Many applications were received throughout NZ, while only the absolute best competitors were selected and then invited to bring their best designs to the Ballantynes Boardroom in Christchurch.
The Grand Prize and winning package earned the rights to sell their products exclusively in Ballantynes stores for a period of 12 months with all sales going to the winner. Also included was 12 months free mentoring, media, and marketing to launch their products instore and online.
Held over two sessions and only one day, competitors were required to ‘Present and Pitch’ their products or ideas, to a team of very discerning Ballantynes Buyers. It was later reported that, “the standard of products and ideas were incredible, which made the decision for the buyers a very difficult one”.
Although I did not win the ultimate prize, I was a finalist! After an in-depth discussion about my products and fielding many questions, I was highly praised for my creativity. The Ballantynes buyers said, "I made some truly beautiful products that smell divine". It was also said "You're the Bomb products would definitely be a unique product, unlike anything else currently sold in Ballantynes' stores".
The Grand Prize and competition winner went to a creator of children’s wear.
