The future of Women in Media - first WimLink event:
Dina Kaplan (COO and Co-Founder, blip.tv), Nicole Tecco (Principal, Tipping Point Partners) and Shanthi Sarkar (SVP Product Management and Operations at ContextWeb) share their insights and perspectives on trends, opportunities as well as discuss the strategies for thriving in the rapidly evolving Media & Technology landscape. We will also discuss the digital economy, and how that is impacting media and technology professionals - and what the future of collaboration and innovation might be.
Juliette Powell (an entrepreneur and media specialist with a decade of experience in broadcast, interactive content, production and strategy, and co-founder of The Gathering Think Tank) will moderate the evening.
One of the main objectives of tonight is to introduce the WimLink Organization to everyone - to share the objectives and encourage dialogue and involvement, and to discuss what trends and opportunities we are seeing in the future of media. Rebecca Shaw, my co-founder, likened the tone of the discussion to the book What Are You Optimistic About?: Today's Leading Thinkers on Why Things Are Good and Getting Betterwhich is compiled by John Brockman, and I think the analogy is apt.
