Dubai entrepreneur picked to compete in Amazon Prime reality TV series
Briar Prestidge will star in The Social Movement which will follow 40 entrepreneurs, CEOs and investors from around the world
Dubai-based entrepreneur Briar Prestidge has been selected from thousands of business owners to compete in a new Amazon Prime reality TV series about entrepreneurs.
The show, The Social Movement, is filmed in Montreal and will follow 40 entrepreneurs, CEOs and investors from around the world who will aim to solve socio-economic issues that are impacting the planet, including wage inequality, access to affordable health care, global warming, hunger and homelessness.
In teams, the contestants will be paired with not-for-profit organisations to create a business strategy, and will have to overcome a series of challenges and pitching rounds.
Similar to the hit show The Apprentice that starred now US President Donald Trump, the show will have an ultimate “pitch off” in front of an audience. The winning team’s not-for-profit will win the investment prize and The Social Movement team will return for season 2 to defend their crown.
A digital marketer and communications professional, she grew up in a small town in New Zealand called Darfield, prior to an international career that spans across Dubai, New York, London and Australia.
Through her PR agency, Briar Prestidge International, she builds influencial online-offline brands. She is also the founder of a corporate fashion and sunglasses label, and is the host of popular live talk show event in Dubai, The Deals in High Heels Show.
