At a government forum on venture capital investment in entrepreneurial ventures, which was part of the media excursion, Shefsky addressed hundreds of government leaders, prominent business people and financiers. "It is clear that Kellogg and my book were exposed to a huge audience," he said. He also traveled to Israel to address the Ernst & Young Journey Conference on the subject of positioning and advancing entrepreneurial healthcare ventures.
