GUEST SELECTION CRITERIA
Proposals for guest appearances should be emailed to email@example.com with the essential story information and background on the guest to be interviewed. It is essential that the guest have suitable credentials to discuss the topics that are to be covered in the interview. Interview topics may include any aspect of biotech and its impact on society. Product development efforts should specify where they are in the science-to-approved-product life cycle. Products already marketed will also be considered.
SUCCESSFUL STRATEGIES for Booking Tech Nation Guests
Provide a detailed biography of the guest is essential. Traceable/verifiable credentials are a must.
Recognize that BioTech Nation has a general mainstream audience, as well as a Biotech Industry and Academic/Research audience. Avoid stories and guests best suited for the trade press, the financial media sector, or scientific publications.
Choose an appropriate interview guest or guests. Generally, this would be a President and/or CEO, the Founder(s), the Chief Scientific Officer, etc. Unless business development personnel have appropriate scientific credentials, they will not be considered.
Late-breaking news items are generally not appropriate.
Other than that, you can always ask!
THE INTERVIEW PROCESS
Once interest has been established in interviewing a potential guest, a "story prep call" is scheduled via zoom. During this call, the story is determined, the appropriate mainstream language is identified, and the arc of the story is firmed up.
Interviews are then conducted either remotely or at the International BIO convention each summer.
TECH REQUIREMENTS FOR REMOTE INTERVIEWS
For remote interviews, the guest needs a microphone and wired earphones, both connected to the guest's computer. (Sufficient USB-connected microphones for laptops can be purchased for under $100 on Amazon.)
A selection of BioTech Nation and/or Tech Nation underwriting options are available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest.
