Some good friends of mine, Suzanne & Michael Royce,  had published a book "Learn & Compete" on how to do well in the competition. I foolishly pointed out that, whilst there were chapters on most aspects of design, there wasn't a chapter on Business Presentation -- so I found myself writing that chapter for the second edition of the book which will be published in the US next year.

Sponsors provide other activities for teams and visitors ....including the Landrover 4x4 challenge
