5/6 Yr6 – Pitch Presentation

Today is the day that we get to present our wonderful creations! I know that you have planned and prepared everything that you would pitch. Today we are going to focus on how we present our ideas; much like many of our past presentations there are things we must include and ways in which we must act.

TASK 1

For your first task today I would like you to watch the 2 videos below. Whilst watching the first video I would like you to think about why the pitch was unsuccessful. Would you like to buy this product why? what did the person pitching it do that made it a negative experience? Were they welcoming and informative etc? Do you think they were clear? Write down a few sentences as to why this could be considered a bad pitch.

For the second video I would like you to focus on the positives. Would you like to buy this product why? what did the person pitching it do that made it a positive experience? Were they welcoming and informative etc? Do you think they were clear? Write down a few sentences as to why this was a good pitch.

TASK 2

After watching such videos, you should now understand why your attitude and demeanor is an important part of your pitch. I would like you to plan how you are going to sell your item to use teachers (think of us as the dragons).

When presenting, you will need to:

  1. Introduce your product – is there a story behind the name? A personal reason you chose such baked good? Do you have pleasant childhood memories of this food? Is it your grandma’s secret recipe? This is the chance to hook the dragon in, make it interesting and personal.
  2. Who is the target audience? What places would sell your product? Is it expensive and best suited for afternoon tea in Harrods or are you making your product cheap so that mom’s can buy one for all of their children as a treat on the way home?
  3. What makes your product unique? Explain why your product is different to any others on the market? How is it different to the cakes in greggs? Is it vegan? Is it designed for babies with no teeth or grannys who have lost their false teeth? Is the packaging different? Are all ingredients fairtrade and free range? Does a percentage of the profits go to cocoa farmers? This is where you need to think outside the box! Remember, there are 90 of you in year 6, why should I buy your product and not one that is 50p cheaper?

TASK 3

You will need to now present your pitch and your product. For those of you who are in school, we will film it.

For those of you at home, I would like you to film yourself presenting your work. Follow the three points in task 2 and talk to the camera as if it were the dragon. Your teacher will be seeing this after all! You really need to persuade them that your product is the best!

Please send in your video via we transfer. It is incredibly simple and is the most effective way of ensuring that no video is too large. You can download the app or use the website.

You must send the video to y6upload@broadheath.coventry.sch.uk

When sending your pitch, please ensure that you write your name and your class in the message box. EXAMPLE: Miss Vega – 6W

If you do not write this in the message box your video may not be seen by the correct teacher.

We would love to see your pitches and create class videos, but we can only do this if you submit your work. If there are any issues and you cannot send a video, please speak to us!

  1. Video 1:

    I wouldn’t buy this product because the person on the right side was not being professional. He had an attitude what showed that he was not bothered.At the beginning they were informative but slowly they were getting less informative.

    Video 2:

    I would by this product because he was being emotional about his daughter and he had a good attitude. He wasn’t complaining and he was cared so much about selling his product. He was really confident and thats good. If your not confident you will have a bad impression on the dragons.

  2. Miss Vega Yesterday i went on my phone and tried recording the presentation but the video button wasnt there and i tried downloading recording apps in the appstore but it says theres a problem in my apple ID so i don’t know what to do…

    • Fabby! Cannot wait to see it! I will create a blog with all the videos I receive on Monday. You have the weekend – like I said on the zoom call :)

  3. Task 1:

  4. Task1)
    I think is a bad pitch because the behaviour of one of the entrepreneurs had a very bad attitude to the dragons. I would not buy it as it is missing 3 main components. They weren’t very welcoming.
    Task1b)He was welcoming and and informative and the product was educational and he got emotional and he was clear and I would buy the product because it’s educational.

  5. Task 1.)
    First video:
    1.)Would you like to buy this product why?
    I wouldn’t buy this product because it has low quality.
    2.)What did the person pitching it do that made it a negative experience?
    The filter wasn’t working properly and it needed a lot more support to help the filter with it’s function.
    3.) Were they welcoming and informative etc?
    They were welcoming whereas they were not informative.Half of the information was not true.
    4.)I don’t think they were clear because they first said it was working
    properly then they said the three reasons to improve on there product.
    Second video:
    I would buy this product because he was emotional,clear and he had a good attitude.

  6. If I were one of the Dragons I would buy the second pitch as the man has a heart – breaking backstory and he really needs his business up and running. Also I really love the idea about primary children’s toys as it can help them learn while they are having fun at the same time. It would help there immune system as there was a mud kitchen it would raise their growth mindset; and most importantly the would be learning as all of this is going on. That is why I would invest in his idea.

  7. Miss Vega I have made a video and sent it to school via we transfer and mail but there was an error. So is there another way for me to send my work.

  8. Task 1:
    For the first pitch It seems like a good idea but they will not share the names of any retailers they have worked with so it seems like they have not checked the idea. The second pitch was great as they explained their reasoning behind it and why they started to make it. They made were clear and informative of their idea.

  9. Would you buy the product and why?
    I thought that the product they had made was simply outstanding but the fact that their product wasn’t complete was unprofessional.
    What did the person pitching it do to make a negative experience?
    He had his hand in his pockets and didn’t give much information.
    Were they welcoming and informative?
    I thought that they gave some information but they weren’t welcoming.
    Do you think they were clear?
    In my opinion I thought that they were clear but not prepared for the question’s that the dragons were asking.

    Video 2
    Would you buy there product and why?
    I would buy there product because it gives children an imagination and outdoor education.
    What did the person pitching do to make it a positive experience?
    He gave lots of information about what he had made and why he did it.
    Were they welcoming and informative?
    In my opinion i thought that they were welcoming and informative because he had a positive attitude and he answered all of the dragons questions in detail.
    Do you think they were clear?
    I thought that he was clear and understanding for the dragons and I think that is why they invested in his business.

    Task 2
    I have sent in my video.

  10. 1st video:
    I wouldn’t buy that product because the guy on the right had attitude and both of them didn’t really care about the product and just wanted to get the money and I don’t want to buy something that the person who made that product doesn’t care about the product.
    Video 2:
    I will buy the product because he was getting emotional about his daughter and he was nice and didn’t argue about the percentage they want and I would buy it because he cares about the product and he is being grateful that he’s getting £50,000 for 25% and 30% of his business and that’s why I would want to buy the product!.

  11. Task1
    video 1)I wouldn’t buy this product as it seems hard to use,expensive and uncomfortable. The person pitching made it negative because he seemed to not care about his body language. I found the people pitching them informative but rather laid back. I found them clear on what they wanted and why it was a good idea. This was a bad pitch as it was not presented well and they weren’t clear on their product.
    video 2)I would buy this product as it is great for young children to have fun. The person pitching made it positive by having good body language saying very clearly what he was doing with his product and why he was doing that with his product.I found them very welcoming towards the Dragon Den members and was very clear on his goal.He was very clear on his goal.

  12. Task 1

    The first video was a bad pitch because one of the entrepreneurs had a good attitude towards the pitch and shared everything but the other had a bad attitude and didn’t share all his ideas and info needed for the dragons making an investment.

    The second video was a good pitch because the entrepreneur had a good attitude, a good and useful company, and pitched all his ideas in a way that the dragons were able to fully understand his goal. He was clear with his pitch and already had his business booming by not even contacting schools and just getting offers.

  13. Mrs Vega when I tried to do my presentation I went on camera but on camera the video button wasn’t there and then I couldn’t video it. I remember last time this happened when the slo mo and video features were gone. So Mrs Vega I don’t know how to show you the presentation or do it videoing myself.

  14. I would like to buy breezy because she can clean air. The two guys were not so successfully at first because the wouldn’t tell the dragons the company it worked with. The were acting suspicious. The man with the glasses had bad atttitude. But at the end they made an acceptioal deal.

    In the second video the man was very clear at his speaking. The play set was fun for the dragons too. The mans daughter fell into fire. He had two choices eithor to be useless or stay with his family. He wanted to be with his family. And he was successfull.

  15. Task 1
    Video 1
    In the first video the entrepreneurs were hoping to get a deal of £100,000 for 5% of their business. Their pitching was not done well and they were unsuccessful. One of the entrepreneurs kept their hands in their pockets throughout the whole of the pitching which would be considered rude. They did not mention the name of the retailer which was not welcoming because they did not want to share the details. I would not like to buy their product as it has been put at a high price but is incomplete. I think they were clear as they explained all details of the product.

    Video 2
    I would like to buy this product because it is colourful yet the price is low. The person pitching it made it a positive experience because he had a reason behind his work and shared all he had to. He was determined to get a deal and would do everything he could to get one. He was welcoming and gave lots of information about the product. The entrepreneur was very clear in his pitching.

  16. Task 1
    Video 1:
    I wouldn’t buy this product because in order for the entrepreneurs to convince the Dragons they have to have a good attitude and good demeanor because one person had a big attitude problem and bad demeanor and the Dragons will think that he’s not really bothered and only the other person was bothered. Also they didn’t really present it properly because in my opinion they weren’t speaking with clear and persuasive language.
    Video 2:
    I would maybe buy this product because this man was very emotional but also had a good attitude and a good demeanor which wasn’t a problem and it looked to me like he was really bothered in selling his product. Also he was presenting his product with clear and persuasive language which convinced the Dragon a lot.

  17. Task 1
    I would not buy this product because they did not clearly explain what they had created and did not tell what their main goal was to achieve with their product. As well as this they had a very negative attitude towards their product.

  18. Task 1:
    The first video was a bit negative because the person pitching was a bit rude and his attitude seemed like he wasn’t bothered (as the dragons mentioned). The product had not been tested properly and was not ready to be in use therefore the dragons weren’t too sure about it. However, pitcher was honest about his product.
    The second video was good because the man was clear on what he wanted to do and why he wanted to do it. He also let the dragons interact with the equipment he had made. The pitcher had already got some offers from schools and his product was tested and working. Therefore, I think that the second video was positive.
    I will send my video in later once it is complete.

  19. I would not buy the first video’s product because it seemed like they didn’t care and had a a bad attitude. One person his hands in his pockets which indicated he has no interest and was not informative enough. They were confident and clear but were unenthusiastic.
    I would buy the second product because he seemed like he cared about selling the product. He even let the dragons try his learning equipment out. He was informative and clear about his product

  20. Task 1:
    For the first Video linked in the blog, after watching it i think this is unsuccessful since they did not present there product as good as they should have done and one of ther attitude towards the end of the presentation was bad so that why they were unsuccessful.

  21. 1. In the first Video he was standing informally and he was acting a little bit rude so that gave a negative impact on them and the product.
    On the second video he was standing formally and wasn’t acting rude an actually cared about his product.
    2. I would sell my cake next to a supermarket because if people are hungry after coming out of a supermarket and they want to treat themselves or their children they can buy a cake and they don’t have to go to far.

  22. Task 1
    Video1
    I would not like to buy the product because it does not work very well and it costs a lot of money.The person pitching had their hands in their pockets which is considered bad mannered as if you are trying to hide something.They were not very welcoming as they decided not to disclose the name of the retailer to the dragons.I think that they were clear because they said what it was about and what its purpose was.
    Video 2.
    I would buy this product because it is very cheap yet it has a lot of stuff.The person pitching had a very good posture and demeanor.They were very welcoming and informative.They were very clear about the product.

  23. TASK 1:

    For the first video, they never really presented their product clearly. As well as this, one of the persons attitude were not as nice so that gave a negative impact on the product.

    For the second video, the person presented their product very clearly and he was very welcoming. I would by this product.

    • Task 1:
      For the first video, they have not presented their product clearly. Also the second persons attitude wasn’t good because at one moment Peter responded to him and he answered ” fair enough”.
      For the second one he presented the product very well.

  24. Exciting! Look forward to seeing the quality videos produced.
