Being a guest on CXOTalk is highly competitive, so read the Guest Selection Criteria listed below carefully. We welcome suggestions from PR folks, agencies, literary agents, in-house corporate communications teams, and everyone else.

CXOTalk episodes are merit-based and there is no charge to appear on the show or to propose guests. 

Guest Selection Criteria

We consider these four questions when choosing guests to interview on the show:

1. Is the guest a C-level exec who currently works at a well-known brand? We prefer large organizations but do sometimes interview startup CEOs who are genuinely changing the world or introducing powerful, new ideas. However, for startups, we want to see that real customers have validated your approach.

2. Is the guest doing something profoundly sexy, interesting, or important? For example, AI algorithms that may cure cancer are vital and fascinating. But you need to demonstrate that it works; ideas are crucial, but we want to see execution as well.

3. Is the guest an established business leader? We strongly favor enterprise buyers over technology vendors and service providers. Although academics and authors are welcome to apply, we prioritize business practitioners. Also, we prefer guests from non-technology vendors.

4. Can the guest attract a large audience? We seek guests with the interest and ability to help us promote their episode.

Given the high volume of submissions, we can only respond when guest nominations clearly meet the selection criteria listed on this page.
