Enter the Dragon’s Den…
Posted on July 27, 2009 by Amir Shah
In the summer of 2009 I was invited, following a chain of happy accidents, to visit the London offices of one James Caan a giant of the business world and a colourful character a lot of us welcome into our homes on a weekly basis as one of the powerful Dragons in the popular Dragons Den shows.
If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years and have not yet seen the show I recommend it wholeheartedly, nothing has made me laugh out loud, struggle to understand and be surprisingly impressed with some of the would be innovators in business it ruthlessly thrusts into the limelight for little more than minutes at a time.
I am thrilled to tell you that he is not half as threatening a man in the flesh and welcomed me into his offices to do an add hoc shoot for his own promotional use.
It seems the contacts that are forming around me now have taken on a life of their own, first a dragon, whatever next…?
