Executive Interviews


Help us gather wisdom and we’ll help you build relationships

Interview Sponsorship Overview

Students who grow up without certain life-skills, habits or perspectives may fall short of their potential. Akwai aims to conduct over 1,000,000 Executive Interviews to ensure students have access to knowledge from the world's greatest minds. During Executive Interviews, we obtain wisdom from successful professionals and then turn that information into Akwai Action Plans that are used by teachers, students and parents.

Imagine this scenario; You get a phone call saying an organization wants to interview you because you’re a successful professional and your knowledge may help local students flourish into successful adults. 

Would you take the 30 minute phone call? Probably so, and so would many other executives who would be otherwise difficult to meet with. Building our database of 1,000,000 Executive Interviews will require paying employees for a lot of time on the phone. To make this process sustainable, we would like you to sponsor our calls while we build meaningful relationships on your behalf.

While the ideal sales strategy for your company may not involve telemarketing, I believe a small scale test could persuade you. The individuals who make the decision to purchase your product or service are the same individuals with the knowledge that can save our students years of headaches. Allow Akwai to reach out to these professionals to conduct an Executive Interview and we will introduce your company as the sponsor who financially backed our interviewer. We can even tailor some of the interview questions so that [a] there is a seamless transition into your company’s offerings and [b] you can qualify if the prospect is your ideal customer. We can work together on how your company is introduced and what call to action will be presented (ask for the sale on the spot, immediately hand the call off to your sales representative, schedule a call for later, be added to your mailing list etc). Additionally, the industry-specific insights gained from these interviews can be accumulated to establish you as a thought-leader. You can repurpose quotes and video from the interviews to potentially use them for your company's social media posts, articles/blogs, white papers/reports, book publishing, speaking engagements, corporate training etc.

In my experience, business leaders have been very receptive to being interviewed. No matter who your prospects are, you can be confident we can get them on the phone. Either way, students will benefit from the wisdom gained, but ensuring that there is a return on investment for your company is something that will have to be tested and refined.
