I truly enjoyed being part of this virtual conference…It was GREAT to see and hear so many amazing people talk about how and what they are doing to not just cope with all that is happening, but what is on the way and how to kee your head and heart looking forward.
Fri: TOOLS in the TOOL BOX for WORKING REMOTELY was very informative and encouraging as we are all going rogue just now.
Really liked how things were broken down and explained…also how things like making sure you get the OK to record the interview instead just going on air live.
Sat: BEAUTIFUL PROCESS FOR UGLY TIMES was great and informative, but the most helpful part was the sharing of stories and the sense of community. It was very heartening to see and hear true professionals and non who are doing this 24/7 all year long. NO MATTER WHAT!
Sun: POWER TO THE PEOPLE I was really looking forward to hearing about how diversity has changed and where we are now as broadcasters and more. Again not just the tech skill sets of the speakers but the passion was really great to see and hear.
My take was that this thing we all do…is truly an important thing. Sometimes it may not feel that way in obvious ways and we may feel like why are we doing it…or is anyone really listening and is my part in this story of our lives really meaningful? After listening to so many great people this weekend, yes it does matter, MORE than we may realize. whether your show is playing music or interviewing or news oriented…EVERYTHING We are Doing Matters and People are listening and perhaps even using our shows as way of staying informed and learning and just to know there are others out there who care and are trying to make a difference is a HUGE thing.
Thank you for this chance to participate and I am looking forward to my own show RE BOOT.
With Gratitude and Respect
