Following 16 events in cities throughout the UK in which 64 businesses have pitched for experienced managers and executives, Pitching for Management reaches its finale on Tuesday, 13th December. The best regional businesses will have a second chance to seek top business talent and win the overall best pitch prize at a gala event at the lovely Leigh Court near Bristol.

Challenging conventional recruitment, Pitching for Management is a new take on the business angel investment model where companies normally seek funding through a presentation to potential investors.

It provides an opportunity for businesses and individuals to be matched where’s there’s a mutual benefit.

“We’ve toured the UK to provide a platform for growth businesses to demonstrate their growth potential and recruit highly skilled executive management. It’s provided a great insight into the diverse range of businesses out there that are growing despite the current economic conditions,” said Modwenna Rees-Mogg who has organised Pitching for Management.

“The finale is a culmination of all the UK pitches where the best of the best will have a second chance to pitch to an audience of highly skilled individuals seeking management and non-executive positions.”

Modwenna added: “We’ve been impressed at the calibre of businesses pitching and the individuals seeking positions. We’re pleased that this new take on recruitment is working so well and is definitely a model for the future.”

A selection of companies qualified for the finale so far are: Rackety’s Ltd, Last Second Tickets Ltd, Growth Innovators Group Ltd, Tweetsport Ltd, T Box Solutions Ltd, and Conserro Ltd.

Colin Sworder of Kraft Maus commented: “Following my presentation at Pitching for Management in Nottingham, I am delighted to say that I have recruited Peter Bretherton as our Sales Director on a sweat equity basis. Another success for the Pitching for Management initiative; I could not have recruited without it.”

The event is being staged in association with Intramezzo and UKBI. It is being hosted by Business West and supported by Bristol SETsquared and Executives Online.

The event takes place at 3pm on Tuesday, 13th December at Leigh Court, Abbot Leigh, Bristol.
