The AMERICAN WOMEN IN RADIO & TELEVISION (AWRT) and the MENTORING AND INSPIRING WOMEN IN RADIO GROUP (MIW) will present a "Speed Mentoring" session on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17th, 2008, in conjunction with the NABEF Career Day event at the 2008 NAB RADIO SHOW in AUSTIN.
The series of eight-minute advice sessions, modeled after the widely successful "speed dating" concept, will be hosted by members of AWRT and the MIWs. Attendees will be able to meet and speak "one-on-one" with top professionals in radio programming, sales, marketing and management to gain valuable tips on how to better reach and excel at their career goals. After the sessions, there will be time for on-site networking with other industry professionals.
"This is a fabulous opportunity for everyone involved," AWRT 2008 National Chair MARY BENNETT said. "We are delighted that AWRT and the MIW Radio Group can collaborate on such a neat concept that empowers female professionals in the industry by giving them unprecedented access to industry leaders."
"We are thrilled to work together with AWRT in presenting this exciting, first-time event at the NABEF Career Day event," MIW Radio Group Spokesperson HEIDI RAPHAEL. "It’s a terrific opportunity for attendees to speak with some of the top radio professionals in our industry.”
