What to expect on the day
Once all teams are registered, the teams will be briefed. The brief will be based around a real-life scenario for the client – British Fashion Council – and will be exactly the same as one issued to a marketing consultancy or agency. You will need to read the brief, interpret it and produce a solution to present as your Pitch.
As in real-life you will be able to call on whatever resources you require. All we ask is that you don’t harass the organisation which set the brief. Apart from that you can call on whatever and whoever you wish to help. Just remember it is only the three team members that will be able to prepare The Pitch presentation for the client.You can do whatever you want in your pitch presentation but must adhere to 8 PowerPoint slides only along with the two-page written proposal. You must bear in mind that the client panel will be judging you on the following:
- Understanding of the brief
- Interpretation of the brief to create your strategy
- Application of marketing tools and techniques
- Creativity and innovation
- Presentation style and quality
In the afternoon each team will present their Pitch to a panel of judges. The judges will announce the three finalists at the beginning of the evening proceedings. If your team is successful in going through to the final please note that no changes can be made to the presentation itself. The finalists will then present The Pitch in front of the audience, and a winning team will be selected by the judges.
Free refreshments (tea, coffee, soft drinks etc.) will be available throughout the day. Lunch and a buffet will be served at the BPP Law School.
You are very welcome to invite supporters, friends and colleagues to the final from 18:00 to cheer you on. It’s free to attend but numbers may be restricted so make sure that they register in advance – you’ll be told how this can be done at the same time your application is approved.
