The New Generation Latino Consortium: Media, Marketing and Entertainment Conference

Tuesday April 2, is the New Generation Latino Consortium's (NGLC) Media, Marketing and Entertainment Conference and I am honored to be invited to attend. I'm eager to listen and learn from the experts in the industry. Attending this conference provides the opportunity to interact with Fortune 500 executives, top NGL media outlets, general and Latino market ad agency executives, celebrities and invited press outlets.
The NGLC is "the only organization dedicated to educating and informing the business and entertainment worlds about the importance of the New Generation Latino (NGL) market."
At a pivotal time where a new foundation is being set for our industry, the NGLC’s mission of embracing the Total Latino Market has never been more poignant.  We’ve been openly leading this conversation for over a decade with our signature events being a must-attend for those eager to participate in a fresh discussion about the tremendous Latino business opportunities that exist across media, marketing and entertainment. David Chitel, NGLC Chairman & Founder.
Past speakers include Soledad O'Brien, John Leguizamo and Rosie Perez. This year's conference promises to be exciting.  And I'll be tweeting throughout - so be sure to follow me @LaliQuin.

Just to give a little taste...panel discussions will feature (and be moderated by) executives from the Latino advertising, marketing and entertainment communities including: Sergio Alcocer (President & CCO, Latinworks) Tanzina Vega (Reporter, NY Times), Richard Pleplar (CEO, Home Box Office),  Peter Castro (Deputy Managing Editor, People), Rene Alegria  (CEO, Mamiverse Media), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Tony Winning Composer/Lyricist/Actor – In The Heights), and Lisa Garcia Quiroz (SVP, Corp. Responsibility & Chief Diversity Officer, Time Warner). And there will be a  celebrity sit-down that includes singer/songwriter Prince Royce and Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas. You can see the full agenda/speaker/moderator list - HERE  

If you've been following this blog for a while, you know I'm a secretary by day, grad student/writer by night and mami round the clock. Earlier this week, I posted my 500th blog post inspired by Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In. And if this isn't a Lean In opportunity, then I don't what is...
