Sr. Director of Revenue Operations, Bitcentral
If you are in broadcast, streaming, or media today, you are a storyteller, and you know how quickly the industry is changing. DRIVE 2022: The Future of Storytelling is an interactive 2-day virtual event that connects like-minded individuals in the broadcasting, publishing or media space to learn, interact and meet. This isn’t some “boring, eat lunch while you watch a webinar” virtual event. This is a “get out of your silo so you can be a better storyteller and drive the future of our industry” type of event. If that sounds like a good use of your time, register today! It’s a free event, but space is limited, and seats fill up quickly.
