Speaking gigs: Navigating Today’s Media, October 2014
I’m honored to be a keynote speaker at the Alabama Media Professionals’ conference later this month.
Navigating Today’s Media will have me and ABC 33/40 anchor Pam Huff as keynoters at its daylong event on Oct. 23 at Innovation Depot in downtown Birmingham. My lunchtime talk is titled “Why the Birmingham Media Ecosystem Collapse is a Good Thing,” and I’ll have quite a bit to cover in those 30 minutes.
The official description:
Poor coverage. Clickbait. A drought in a society drowning in information. Birmingham is at the forefront of a disturbing trend: media collapse. The city loses with the consolidation of corporate owners, the dumbing down of journalists and the resulting chaos.
Consultant and veteran journalist Wade Kwon sees opportunities amid the ruins, for freelancers, for PR professionals, for brand managers. Discover the hidden benefit to media implosion in his keynote presentation.
The conference is $85, and tickets are available online.
I hope you’ll join us for a provocative and meaty look at local media situation and how communications professionals can benefit.
