California-based KMD Productions is presenting a webinar entitled “How to Network in An Industry in Turmoil” next Wednesday, January 13 at 11:am U.S. Pacific time, featuring panelists Tony Baraz, Wendy Parr, and Mike Dias returning for the third in their ongoing “Turmoil” series.
Networking, the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups, and or institutions, is critical in the music and entertainment industries, notes KMD Productions founder Karen Dunn: “Even in ‘normal’ times, networking has been essential to shaping one’s career in the music business. Now that most of our business has moved online, we want to address ways in which people can successfully leverage these networking skills in the digital world.”
Dunn, whose more than two decades in the music industry includes being Event Director of the NAMM Technical Excellence and Creativity Awards, will be joined by Tony Baraz, a DJ/producer and industry veteran who has worked with Guitar Center and Serato, as well as on music productions with artists like Stevie Wonder and Biz Markie; Wendy Parr, an award-winning songwriter, vocal coach, educator, and public speaker; and Mike Dias, a pro audio and consumer electronics professional who focuses on customer relationship management and technology marketing.
Panelists will share their views on best practices for helping form meaningful connections and nurture career-spanning relationships, both online and offline, how each of them has adapted to the “new normal,” and some of the tools and tips they’re using to stand out in this new 2D environment. The 30-minute panel will be followed by a 15-minute Q&A session.
