About Media SharkTank

CEOs or executive spokespersons delivered a private, three-minute pitch to a panel of the nation’s sharpest broadcast and business press journalists, and provided valuable, private, 1:1 feedback based on their honest and expert opinion. Attendees got the inside scoop like never before and learned exactly what they needed to do to make it in the headlines!

Participation allowed several company leaders to hone their elevator and business press pitches along with their presentation skills and to be more successful in the future.

Proceeds from the SharkTank were donated to the San Francisco BayKeeper charity.
