Join LMHQ as they welcome back LMHQ’s pal Kelly Hoey, author of Build Your Dream Network: Forging Powerful Relationships in a Hyper-Connected World (Penguin Random House), as she reveals yet another pearl of business wisdom: how to write a book and get published. Moderated by host of the “You’ve Been Served” podcast, Keesa Schreane, Kelly will share how she got published, and why aspiring authors need to think strategically and entrepreneurially before they even put pen to paper.
Kelly’s first book, Build Your Dream Network, was released in January 2017 and was in its third printing before March that year. Kelly’s book adventures have taken her from New York to Silicon Valley to Dublin and Australia (to name just a few), from speaking with audiences ranging from out-placed Wall Street executives to college entrepreneurs, to teams at Google HQ and at the Rotary Club of Dallas. Build Your Dream Network has been featured in publications ranging from Vogue.com to Business Insider and Working Mother Magazine.
Doors open at 8:30 AM for bagels and coffee and an opportunity for networking, and our panel kicks off at 9:00 AM sharp.
This event is sponsored by Verizon.

−Covering the Issues Ahead in Trump’s Second Year: Three Day Workshop @ Vanderbilt University9:00 am – 5:00 pm
In this free workshop at Vanderbilt University, journalists will look beyond politics toward issues that are likely to affect nearly every community. You will be equipped with knowledge and awareness to cover some of the most pressing issues that are likely to emerge in 2018. Click here to apply today.
The Affordable Health Care Act: Identify what is not working and what could be done to fix those problems.
Cyber Security: How susceptible and prepared are local, county and state governments to cyber attacks? What about the threat to the nation’s electrical grid and pipelines? What do journalists need to know about issues of private cyber security? How do cyber crimes affect business and finance?
Trade Agreements: It appears likely that there will be some changes to NAFTA. What would those changes mean to business, consumers and manufacturers big and small? What needs fixing? Who would benefit and who would be harmed?
Local and State Governments Taking on Global and National Issues:Maybe it is a sign that Washington is in gridlock and somebody has to do something. But local governments are increasingly at the center of what used to be federal business. From climate agreements to environmental regulations and immigration, local governments are where the action is. The Canadian prime minister met with governors about trade agreements and legislators lobbied governors on the Affordable Health Care Act changes.
The Local Effects of Climate Change: EPA says flooding is becoming more frequent along the U.S. coastline as sea level rises. Nearly every site measured has experienced an increase in coastal flooding since the 1950s. Farmers face changing growing seasons and power companies are logging more demand to cool hot buildings and less demand to warm normally cold ones. Pollen seasons are getting longer and the spread of health worries including Lyme disease and West Nile virus are linked to warming temperatures.
Vanderbilt University is excited to partner with Poynter on this project. Participants will attend sessions at the university’s First Amendment Center. In addition, many lectures will be led by Vanderbilt faculty that are world-class researchers and experts on the topics covered by this workshop.+9:00 amCovering the Issues Ahead in Trump’s Second Year: Three Day Workshop @ Vanderbilt University

−Editors as Curators: How to Engage Audiences with Nimble Newsletters2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Traditional news outlets, nonprofits, universities and corporations increasingly are using newsletters to deliver information to their audiences. In this webinar, you’ll find out how to edit newsletters for maximum effectiveness.
Newsletters allow publishers to connect with audiences directly. They offer a promise to readers: Allow us in your inbox, and we’ll provide value to you. They can vary in content, tone and interactivity. But despite those differences, the common goal of newsletters is to give audiences what they need or want to know in a well-organized, efficient manner.
And that’s where editing skills come in. Newsletter editors curate information in a logical, readable way. They think about the mindset of readers. Audiences have myriad choices when it comes to newsletters. They face an overload of information available on the internet. But well-edited newsletters can provide order to the chaos.
Editors are key players in this increasingly popular delivery platform for news and information.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
