Shark Showdown

Business communication program for teams

Based on the hit TV show, Shark Tank, the key to success in this fun, fast-paced, teambuilding Shark Showdown event is creativity and execution. Using some fun icebreakers, your group will be formed into random gams, grinds, herds, schools, pods, collages, or shivers - better known in our business as “teams”.

Each team will be given the challenge of fulfilling a public need by creating a product for the sharks – otherwise known as your bosses! Teams will need to use creativity, ingenuity, and some mechanical skills to design and build their new product for the sharks to judge.

All teams will be provided with materials and iPads. Additional items will be available for purchase at our company store with points accumulated by the teams completing challenges presented to them on their iPads.

Using ideas from your company’s own product line to develop your prototype will obviously sit well with the sharks, so brainstorming your new product idea to incorporate something from our company is very important.

After the teams have created their products, the judging will begin. Each team will come before the sharks with their prototype, marketing materials, slogan, jingle, commercial and any other visuals they think will win over the sharks. Organization and delegation are the keys to this competition.

After presenting their new product, the sharks will have time to question the team about their invention. At the conclusion of the Q and A, each shark will give the team a score between 1 (the worst) and 5 (the best).

Scores with then be tallied and the winning team declared – followed by an awards ceremony with a “Shark Tooth” medallion for each member of the winning team!

“Shark Tank is one of my favorite U.S TV shows. There are variations of this program all over the world, including Dragon’s Den in Canada and England and Den D in the Czech republic. The more I watched these shows, the more I thought a hybrid version of this concept would make a great corporate event. It really unleashes the competitive and creative juices of the participants as they brainstorm to come up with a useful product and marketing campaign to fill a public need.”
