5 Ways To Maximize Your Time at Conferences and Film Festivals!

Hey Content Creators,

I've come up with 5 ways to maximize your time at conferences and film festivals!

You may know this about me already but if you don't, my mission in life is to inspire, motivate, and educate women and minorities so they could show up in their best way! As I prepare to moderate a media panel in Miami I've come up with a list that I believe can truly activate my future success and yours too at any event, especially film festivals. I've shared the 5 ways below.

1. Research who you want and need to collaborate with. Don't try to meet everyone, you want to meet THE one.

2. Prepare your agenda before hand. Your agenda should be based on what's most important to you and what your number one goal

3. Prepare a list of questions. Know how people on your list can activate or grow you and your career. Ask questions that best utilizes the person's skills set.

4. Listen. This really starts before you attend the conference during your research. Prepare yourself to fill a need of the person you want to collaborate with. In networking, giving is better than getting.

5. Prepare a 30 second elevator pitch!!! Don't get there and be stumbling over what you do and who you are! Be able to tell people who you are, what you do, what makes you unique or a standout, and why you do what you do.

BONUS. I learned this tip from Senior Vice President of Sales, MichelleThornton (BET-Her). Reach out before hand and connect with the people you want to meet so that they can be expecting you. DOPE TIP, thanks Michelle!

I hope this list can activate you closer to success before you attend your next event!




I can hardly wait to come home! I hope to see you at the #100Pitches: Book Release Event in Chicago.

I've been thinking of doing something special in my hometown. I'm not sure what though. Although Chicago is an amazing city and some great shows are being shot there, I feel there needs to be more coming out of it and so many creators born there wouldn't have to leave to go to other larger markets to achieve success.

What can I do?!?! Do you know?

I do know education is my first step. I want to teach all I know about the industry and breaking down the walls so that more of us can get through the doors! I've recently reached out to other amazing people in the industry to help come up with ideas and to make this book tour stop one of the best I've done so far!

Chicago, please show up to get this information and meet the people who could green light your success!

Maybe I'll do some ticket and book giveaways and raffles too. This way, there will be no excuse!

Leave suggestions on how I can get every content creator in Chicago in the room, please!


Thanks much and see you there!
