So thrilled! Media Talks happens tomorrow night. Thank you to all who registered for this free public event. Myself, the panelists and all the people that have contributed to this event are really looking forward it.
MEDIA TALKS NEWS
Some extra news on Media Talks. For those who successfully registered, if you're considering media course options, representatives from RMIT and Swinburne University (proud supporters of Media Talks) will be available to speak to you during the light dinner break.
If you read my post on media opportunities with the Global Poverty Project you'll know that the GPP's Australian Director, Samah Hadid will be there. Some of my mates who work in the industry and who have supported this event will also be attending. You'll have the chance to meet them all so it will be a great crowd.
MEDIA TALKS PODCAST & YOUTUBE/VIMEO
For those who were interested in attending and couldn't for whatever reason, this event will be broadcast as a podcast and posted onto YouTube/Vimeo at a later date.
I'll also be posting regular podcasts of interviews with different people in media - from radio, television, marketing, public relations etc. so if you want to keep up to date keep checking the page or sign up to my newsletter (on the column in the top right of the screen).
REGISTRATIONS: SELECTION PROCESS
Again, thank you to everyone who registered. It's a shame we couldn't let all applications in on the night.
To give you context, as this event is free value was placed on the registration process. Registrations were reviewed based on relevance, merit and availability. This Media Careers Panel is skewed largely to those considering a media career (so the conversation isn't really skewed to our industry peers).
We received some registrations from those after specific matters that we could not offer in this panel. We also urged you to read the questions carefully. For example, where the registration asked to write 500 words about yourselves (mentioned three times across the Media Talks page and registration page either in bold or underlined) - it made it difficult to pick someone when they had only written one sentence or a paragraph. Something to consider for next time.
Again, as mentioned above, Media Talks will also be a podcast and posted on YouTube/Vimeo at a later date so everyone has access! Win/Win!
