Every so often i get an email or a letter from somebody i've never met. Obviously i'm not alone with this phenomena but what i find slightly bizarre is this person (i've never met) wants to spend time 'shadowing' me or doing work experience for the company.
This morning i received a Facebook message from a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend (serious) and being the curious type (and the type who quite likes the idea of my own personal shadow/runner) i agreed.
Paul and Tim went one better and said they get programme ideas emailed to them. Random ideas from people they've never met.
Usually these emails consist of an attached one-page treatment and very little else. No explanatory email giving a heads-up as to how they got their address or what they actually wanted Tim/Paul to do with the idea.
It seems that increasingly the guys are receiving more of these cyber-shots-in-the-dark and always one to see an opportunity, i've decided we should actually do something with these ideas.
And so the idea for "Pitch Factor" has been born!
