2018 Special Activities




Speed Mentoring

Monday, October 15, 5:45 – 6:30 pm


Take a seat at the table and connect with senior leaders, subject matter experts, and peers from across the industry. This is your chance to engage in high-level, yet intimate discussions on topics relevant to you. The small group format offers a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and glean wisdom from those who have blazed a trail. Held during the Big Apple Reception, each roundtable will feature a media executive or subject matter expert as a table moderator. The moderators will spend 12 minutes with each group. By the end of the 45-minute session, you will have connected with numerous peers and at least three table leaders. Space is limited and expected to fill quickly, so register early. You will not want to miss this one-of-a-kind experience.


Speed mentoring is now full.
