Finding Industries to Research

Each month, we received hundreds of inquires from companies claiming to be one of the World’s Greatest. Our team reviews each application which often inspires our executive team to assign our Senior and Associate Producers to start pre-qualifying businesses in their particular industry throughout the world. They start by researching either a handful of companies in a niche industry to hundreds in larger industries.

Looking For Qualifications

Next, we validate each candidate's qualifications. We look at when they were established, are they a startup, a family business, or a publicly traded company? We eliminate companies that are involved with scandal, bad press, and class action lawsuits. We focus our attention on companies that go above and beyond in their industry and stand out.

Initiate a Discovery Call

Discovery calls are brief. The Associate Producer’s goal is to identify if the candidate has an intriguing story whether they are an innovator, a leader, expert, or another factor that makes them stand out. Candidates are encouraged to give the Associate Producers an elevator pitch. If the Associate Producer is convinced that the candidate has an impressive story, they may schedule a formal telephone casing call with company leadership.

Schedule an Interview

Our Producers are pitched by hundreds of candidates each month. If they hear an incredible story that they believe could be the next candidate featured on our show, the next step is a formal phone interview. We encourage every candidate to invite essential company leaders to the interview but require that the CEO, President, or Owner attend. Executive leadership is required to speak on camera. Associate Producers need to hear how they answer questions on the fly and if their personality is right for television. 

Candidates are encouraged to think of the casting call as a job interview.
