Hurry up and mentor


The Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio Group (MIW) will present a “ Speed Mentoring” Special Session on Wednesday, September 23rd, 2008, 10:30-11:45 am, in conjunction with the NABEF Career Day event at the 2009 NAB Fall Radio Show in Philadelphia.

This fast and furious paced series of eight minute advice sessions will be modeled after the widely successful “speed dating” concept. Hosted by members of the MIWs and other industry leaders, it’s a chance for attendees 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 your career goals. Upon the conclusion of the sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to network on-site.

“We are thrilled to once again present this exciting event at the NABEF Career Day event,” said Heidi Raphael, Spokesperson for the MIW Radio Group. “It’s a terrific opportunity for attendees to speak with some of the top radio professionals in our industry.”
