“CONVERGE! is geared toward aspiring and published authors (books), freelance writers, and magazine publishers,” says host, Dr. Teresa Hairston. The one-day "CONVERGE! Media Summit" will convene at Atlanta’s Airport Hilton on October 12, 2012.
CONVERGE! will feature a series of seminars for those who are just beginning, and even seasoned writers and authors.
What’s unique about CONVERGE! “I’m glad you asked!” Hairston exclaims. “How to write or publish a book or magazine is just the beginning! Today’s authors, writers and magazine publishers can no longer afford to be one-dimensional with their books or businesses, they must have a first-hand understanding of how to plug into social media and marketing in order to be successful.”
CONVERGE! Will feature several experts:
Dr. Samuel R. Chand, who this year was named one of the top 30 Leadership Gurus in the world, will lead seminars for authors. Dr. Chand’s singular vision is to help others succeed. He consults many of the nation’s leading pastors and ministries and speaks to national and international leaders.
Ms. Robin Ware will lead in the area of social media. Dubbed ‘the Social Media Queen,’ Ware has helped ministries and businesses navigate the pathways of the Internet to achieve branding success and increased event response.
Ms. Veda Brown, founder and owner of Blackgospelpromo.com, which reaches nearly 200,000 people daily and promotes everything from books and CDs to movies, will discuss how to strategically implement a successful internet campaign.
Finally, Dr. Teresa Hairston will speak to attendees and especially magazine publishers on the practicality of Convergence online and offline. Hairston founded Gospel Today magazine in 1989 and built it to the #1 Christian lifestyle publication before retiring in 2011.
“When people ask, why I am doing this?” Hairston explains, “The answer is simple. I want to add value to the lives of others. If we can’t actively help others be successful, our lives are empty.”
The event time is: 9a – 5p. Registration is $249. (discounted to $199 if you register before 9.10.12); For more information: www.convergemediasummit.com.
