A GROUP of A Level students from Sir John Deane’s College have ‘wowed’ judges in a TV-style Dragons’ Den competition.
Each student was given seven minutes to pitch their original business idea in a bid to win the coveted prize of a day shadowing two senior business leaders.
Ruth Hardern, was selected as the overall winner for her exciting business idea ‘Buff Boats’ – cleaning and maintaining narrowboats.
She faced tough competition from Rebekah Jones with her DNA keyfob, Stephen Cookson for his organic weedkiller, and Stuart Neyton with his shower device to measure temperature and humidity.
Judges included Steve Jennings, Chief Executive of Weaver Vale Housing Trust, Martin Lee, Chief Executive of Cheshire and Warrington Economic Alliance, Lynda Allen, Chair of the Governing Body Sir John Deane’s College, and Sally Brunt, Head of Business, Economics and Law at Sir John Deane’s.
