We had a great December meeting featuring storytelling with Robin Golinski. Robin engaged the audience and we all became better tellers of our own story! Thanks Robin.

TELLING THE STORY OF YOUR WORK

The ability to describe what you do in a succinct and compelling way is essential for networking and sales. In addition to the structure of the message, the delivery is also important.

Learn how to get your listener to engage and want to know more about what you do so you don’t feel like you’re selling.

Boston Media Makers meeting, WEDNESDAY MAY 3th, 2017, 5 – 8 PM, at Casa Verde Jamaica Plain.

We had a really fun meeting at Casa Verde in Jamaica Plain for our May meeting. Some regulars came along with some new people. It was fun spending the time mingling over beers and tacos. 

Josh Bernoff said, “Best meeting I’ve ever had in a bar.” What a great compliment.

One always enjoyed the mingling part of our Boston Media Makers meetings and that what we did. Some great connections were made.

We’ll be taking the Summer off, and meeting again on October 1st at Doyle’s. See  you then!

Join us in May before we take our Summer break. After the May 3rd meeting, we’ll be off until October.

We connect people who’d benefit from knowing each other.

We’ve been meeting since JANUARY 2006 and every meeting is different. It’s exciting to arrive and find new people who are there to share their story and hear about others. This group is unlike any other because everyone gets to meet everyone else in a laid back environment.

Join us if you are creative, or interested in learning about new things. Some topics that people have recently shared include self publishing on Amazon.com, new ways to shoot and share video, and pointers to interesting events happening around Boston.

Here’s a brilliant video recap of a recent meeting, by Bruce K Garber combining photos, videos and snapchat content:
