FEBRUARY DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP 

What are you Broadcasting? With Shawne Duperon

When it comes to marketing, what are you broadcasting? What's the overwhelming signal you give off whether you're leading a project, networking at an event, posting on Facebook or being interviewed on camera?

Join us for our February Development Workshop "What Are You Broadcasting?" featuring six-time EMMY® winner Shawne Duperon. Shawne has trained thousands across the globe and will show you how to avoid classic on-camera mistakes that harm your brand. 

In this fast-paced marketing session, you will hone and advance your marketing skills through strategic relationship building, especially when it comes to media. You will master:

  • Interview techniques that have you and the reporter looking exquisite.
  • How to "NOT" sound like a commercial and have editors run screaming the other way.
  • How to handle hostile questions and much more.

When you leave this session, you'll know how to act like a pro on the set even if you've never done it before and you’ll know how to keep reporters, producers, editors and influential bloggers coming back for more.
