AWC Presents: “Video Moves Your Story and Now It is a Must!”

October 8, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT

$15 – $35

The Association for Women in Communications (AWC) Detroit Chapter will host a panel discussion on the increased role that video is playing in all aspects of communication.

“Online communication is increasingly video-based,” states AWC Detroit chapter president, Deniella Ortiz-Lalain. “Soon all communication professionals will need to master basic video skills. The good news is that smartphones make this medium available to everyone. This will be a great opportunity to learn from some of the area’s most savvy professionals. This event is a must-attend!”


An expert panel will provide advice on how communicators and other professionals can successfully use video to help make any message more captivating. The panel includes:


Stephanie Davis, reporter and weekend anchor of WWJ Newsradio 950. Stephanie joined WWJ Newsradio in 2002 as a writer/producer and soon after became a full-time reporter/anchor.


Jennette Smith Kotila, senior vice president of Mort Crim Communications, Inc. One of Detroit’s leading video communications companies. She’s an award-winning journalist, editor and multi-channel manager with skills in social media, video, messaging and more.


Bob Giles, editor of NewCarNews.TV, a YouTube channel with updated information on all things car culture and former news editor of WXYZ-TV.



A third-panel expert will be announced soon from WWJ NewsRadio’s team of reporters well versed in using both microphones and cell phone videos to tell their stories.


Tickets are $25 for AWC Detroit members, $35 for future members, and $15 for students and recent graduates. A light meal and refreshments will be provided. The event is sponsored by Catalyst Media Factory and Crain’s Detroit Business.
