“Bank on ME” contestants face the judges
Over 24 entrepreneurs supported by scores of colleagues, family and friends swarmed Scotiabank, Sky Mall at the recent shooting of two audition shows for Season 2 of “Bank on ME“, The Reality Show that means Business.
The guest Judge for this important shoot was Roseanne Myers, General Manager at Atlantis Submarines who was a popular guest judge on the inaugural series. She observed: “It was with great pleasure that I accepted the invitation to return to Bank on Me as a guest judge for Season 2. Having benefitted from the exposure to the process in Season 1, and having watched almost all of the episodes that followed, I was happy to be part of the team. Through contracts with Atlantis Submarines I was privileged to work with a couple of contestants from last year, and sell their products or use their services as a result of my exposure to their companies through Bank on ME.”
“It was very clear that contestants this year had prepared well and practiced pitches which ensured we had a fairly smooth day of taping. The range of businesses was encouraging and I deeply admired all of these individuals who boldly took this step to gain immediate exposure for their enterprises and by applying to actively seek out expertise and funding to take good ideas to sound businesses.” Myers added.
“What a great turn out,” remarked Lisa Cole, Senior Marketing Manager at Scotiabank. “I am so impressed at the quality and variety of the businesses, many of whom just need to get their products or services in front of the public. The exposure from the show can really make a difference for many of these businesses.”
