10 Things only JA Achievers from Company Program will get
Nerves before Pitch It!
Being nervous is natural and expected when public speaking is involved, but all of us are nervous about Pitch It! Despite all the nerves everyone does a really great job presenting their pitches, and it is a really fun day overall.
After finishing your elevator pitch
Upon finishing your elevator style pitch, it is your chance to breathe, relax and enjoy watching the other pitches. Gaining pitching skills is so important and Pitch It is a great opportunity to hone those skills.
Not everything will go according to plan...
Throughout the program every company experiences challenges and unexpected things that will happen. From a member dropping out to navigating problems around making your product, we all encounter testing situations. Though we all learn something from them. As a group we learn how to overcome these challenges, and persevere.
When your group comes up with their idea
Once you start brainstorming in your group, there is usually no shortage of ideas and narrowing down the decision is not always easy. But once the idea is selected it is so exciting to have an idea that you can now work on and make a reality!
No matter the product, you make sure it has an unique spin
No matter what idea your group decides on, the product will always have an innovative aspect to it. Everyone's product or services are always unique and stand out from the crowd!
Impressed by the other companies products or services
Everyone is proud of their own idea, but watching other pitches and other companies at Trade Fair you get to see so many cool ideas. The products and services people have come up with and executed are always really impressive.
The Business Hall of the Fame has the best food
For everyone who has gone to the Business Hall of Fame, they know that the food is incredible! The event is such a great opportunity to network and honour business leaders in Nova Scotia while enjoying amazing cuisine.
You get to say you have run your own business
Company program gives you an unique experience you can share with others and put on a resume! Company program looks great on a resume because it means that you took on a challenge, worked as a team and problem solved to start your own business.
Having to say goodbye to everyone at the end of the program
As a part of Company program everyone meets new people from across the province at the many different events hosted throughout the year. New friends are made during the program and saying goodbye to them at the end of the program is difficult, but hopefully you will see them again in Company program next year!
