Session: “The Life of a Broadcast and Digital Media Expert”

Friday, June 7th, 10:45 a.m. – Noon

Now is a great time to evaluate your go-to-market strategy in today’s crazy digital media-mix world. We’ll discuss how to know what’s the best plan of action for you. Are you ignoring the digital trends hoping they will go away or perhaps you’re all in! We’ll also discuss how to keep your head from exploding from all the knowledge that is out there in the very fast changing digital product lines. Is digital a form of media to stay or is it a slowly fizzling fad that will soon disappear? And how does all this digital stuff blend with my broadcast sales goals? If you’re a full time digital seller or you sell only broadcast or you sell both broadcast and digital, you don’t want to miss this session.

Session: “Leading Change Without Breaking the Broadcast Model”

Friday, June 7th, 1:45 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.

We need to win, and in today’s skeptical and competitive world that’s not easy!  We must continually prove that we’re leaders worth following.   Do our broadcast sellers perceive that management communication, at times, seems insincere and lacks motivational support?   We must embrace the responsibility to be exceptional role models to our teams, so our stable culture is not disrupted by the pressures of day-to-day financial demands.   Questionable decisions and leadership actions have the potential to stymie progress.  Is it any wonder a recent Gallup workforce survey places the number of disengaged employees in the U.S. at 70%?  Come away with best management thinking and practices to add to your revenue-generating culture!
