Plans for WimLink's first event on March 13th are coming along well. We have been completely booked out since last Thursday, but do email me if you're still interested in coming and I will put you on the guest list in case additional seats free up closer to Thursday.
I am really excited to announce that Juliette Powell will be joining our panelists to moderate the event - Juliette brings great experience, energy and flair and we are happy to have her. After my recent experience at NATPE with the Television Week 'Women in Syndication' Luncheon Panel (yes the one and same event which prompted the genesis of WimLink in the first place and which I blogged about earlier), I fully appreciate how important a great moderator is...
