Keynote Speaking

Outlined below is a series of sessions I’ve presented to state associations, collegiate programs and broadcast groups over the past decade.

Perhaps one of these robust sessions would add to the growth of your association, collegiate or group programming – either your annual convention, webinar format or newsletter – in 2019?  

  • What You Need to Know to Be a Program Director in 2019 – Many medium and small market broadcaster are often rudderless without solid and consistent direction.  This Primer 101 outlines all the areas they will need to study to become well-rounded programmers in the future.
  • Coaching the Coaches – targeted to programmers to engage and lead talent.  Session covers building trust, a strategic plan, contact creation, personality profiles and storytelling exercises for budding Program Directors and Operations Managers.
  • Branding – in a Social Media Age – a session on social media from a PROGRAMMERS view (NOT a Social Media Specialist).  With medium and small market broadcasters being time-starved, doing the RIGHT thing in the social space is important.  Finding focus is key. 
  • The Basics – You’re Doing It Wrong – The National Association of Broadcasters has not developed programming basics guidelines or materials in over 25 years.  Attendees will be exposed a solid foundation for programmers of all skill sets from 38 years in broadcasting to what we’ve learn in digital measurement.
  • 20 Things to Improve Your Show – Today – a point by point for air talent, especially those who lack consistent and solid coaching.  Even if the attendees engage in half of these tips, their show will be vastly improved in presentation and content creation.

Each programming track is designed to be presented with Power Point, white board or Ted X-like presentation.  

A few of the state associations who’ve asked for this content include Michigan, Indiana and Missouri.

Other speaking engagements were in front of The National Association of Broadcasters, The National Radio Talent System, Lindenwood University and Southern Illinois University – Southeast students.

Broadcast groups that have seen these presentations include Midwest Family, Grand Canyon Broadcasting, LaSalle County Broadcasting, Federated Media and Midwest Communications.

Attached you will find (without narrative and sound) a sample of some of my presentations – includes a brief history of radio outlining the endurance of our industry.  Very well received!

Let me know how I might help YOUR group this year!
