Tomorrow! Digital Leaders navigating the entertainment world

Guess who’s speaking about digital entertainment as part of the Ivy Entertainment/Digital LA Digital Leaders panel?  Big Bird!  I’m kidding — it’s me.  Below is the rundown on the event.  RSVP here, and I hope to see you there or at the afterparty!

Join us for our panel with IVY Entertainment Digital Leaders who will share stories of their career path to digital, and share their success stories and advice on keys to success digital entertainment.  We’ll also discuss how digital impacts the creation, development, distribution and marketing of content and entertainment services.
