Enter the Lizard Lounge

Do you have what it takes to win in the Lizard Lounge? The best way to boost teamwork and enterprise, we ask students to pitch how they would market and create a new product of their own choosing.

Inspired by the show Dragon’s Den, our programme enables teams of students to flex their creative and enterprising muscles and guides them as they come up with an innovative product, brand and business strategy which they will then pitch to our (less intimidating) panel of Lizards.

This programme is structured to help students discover their role within a team and strengthen the hybrid of skills used in everything from developing to pitching a product. Students are encouraged to think outside the box and explore the different ways there are of promoting something through today’s media ecology and the careers that has created, be it social media, PR or the rise of the ‘vlogger’. Lizard Lounge can be run as a competition or simply a project where each team is given their own feedback – either way, it is an enjoyable and efficient formula to explore and boost transferable skills which has the added bonus of providing a great talking point in cover letters and at interview.
