It’s Not #SharkWeek Without Shark Tank
There’s only one way to celebrate #SharkWeek at Executive Speakers Bureau – a Shark Tank marathon. Not only do the Sharks of Shark Tank share their expertise honestly with budding entrepreneurs but their partnership often inspires some of the greatest inventions that grace our homes today (hello, Scrub Daddy). And, in addition to sharing their expertise on the show, they also share it on the stage, through hundreds of keynote presentations and appearances each year. The next time you are looking for some inspiration from a celebrity keynote speaker who excels in business and entrepreneurship, look no further than the Sharks of Shark Tank.
Barbara Corcoran’s credentials include straight D’s in high school and college and twenty jobs by the time she turned twenty-three. It was her next job, however, that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country, when she borrowed $1,000 from her boyfriend and quit her job as a waitress to start a tiny real estate company in New York City. Over the next twenty-five years, she’d parlay that $1,000 loan into a five-billion-dollar real estate business. As a speaker, Barbara brings her front-lines experience and infectious energy to every person she meets. Motivational, inspirational and sometimes outrageous, Barbara Corcoran’s tell-it-like-it-is attitude is a refreshing approach to success.
When Mark Cuban purchased the Dallas Mavericks in 2000, the face of the organization began to change immediately. Cuban was not only successful at instilling a sense of pride and passion into Mavericks fans by presenting himself as the ultimate role model, by cheering from the same seats he had in years past, and it was through this personal touch that fans throughout the Metroplex, and around the world, began to notice Cuban’s energetic personality and take notice of the Mavericks. In addition to the Mavs, Mark is chairman and CEO of AXS tv, one of ABC’s “Sharks” on the hit show Shark Tank, and an investor in an ever-growing portfolio of businesses.
