Girl Talk. Radio consultant Valerie Geller (r) and Tina Marie Ito (l) publisher of Roger Barkley’s book, The Story Man's First Writes, met for lunch last week at the Casa Del Mar on the beach in Santa Monica. Their friendship started in junior high school. Valerie is hosting a session at the New Mexico Broadcasters Association on August 15. The title of her talk is: “Radio’s Silver Lining: How to Survive and (even) Thrive in our New Reality.” She’s then off to Quebec, New York, Fort Wayne, Indiana, Philadelphia, Boston, Athens, Estonia, Stockholm, Helsinki, and Amsterdam. Geller did so much foreign travel last year that she had to get additional pages for her passport. For more on Geller's book: Creating Powerful Radio, now in a third printing from Focal Press:http://www.creatingpowerfulradio.com/

August 15, 2009 - New Mexico Broadcasters Assocation Convention: Valerie Geller presents: "Radio's Silver Lining: How to Survive & (even) Thrive in our New Reality"  Creativity costs NOTHING.  Now's the time to stretch all your talents -- Radio is still one of the most powerful ways to reach an audience.  There's nothing else like the one-on-one connection you can have with a listener.  But today's listeners don't really care if the relevant content comes out of a traditional terrestrial radio box, or your computer, phone or even the fillings in their teeth, if the content is compelling and informs, entertains, inspires, persuades and connects!  FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Services) cites a battery operated RADIO, right next to bottled water and a candle and matches to put in a household emergency kit!    Remember, what has always mattered in radio: what comes out of the speakers.  Now is NOT the time to sweat the small stuff.   In this programming session, geared for managers, programmers, news, on-air personalities and promotions people, along with all of the "multiple-job folks - on air-programmers who also write copy, pull air shifts, do news and sell, you'll come away with dozens of new and practical ideas - to help you work, focusing on the benefits of this "less-is-more" atmosphere and to successfully create powerful radio in a world of working across multiple platforms.  Learn techniques to maximize ALL of your talents and abilities to get, keep and grow audiences (and revenue) for your station!  !

Canadian Music Week Panel: Radio Stimulus Package
Thursday, March 11th   10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Room: Salon B
Here’s an economic prediction - in the distant future, if and when the Big Three automakers get back on their feet, radio will still be standing. It’s a ballsy vision, what with economic straits, ever-increasing competition from the digital world, budget cutbacks and a talent pool shortage. But this panel of experts has insights into what needs to be done now and in the long-term for the medium to adapt. You may not agree with them, and they may not agree with each other, but this promises to be one of highest-energy CMW thinktanks ever.

Is talent something you’re born with or can it be taught? Can anyone LEARN to become a better, or a  more powerful communicator?  The answer is YES!  Whatever level you're at, EVERYONE can improve! (One of the "curses" of our business is: Because everyone can talk,  people think that it's easy to TALK on the radio.   But anyone who's done the work understands it's harder than it appears.  The killer: The great ones just make it LOOK easy!
It takes talent, but you ABSOLUTELY can improve your craft and skills, with training.  
In this FREE Conclave Webinar, (you DO have to sign up though) you'll learn proven methods in use around the world based on Valerie Geller's experiences working with on-air personalities at more than 500 stations in 30 countries - with the goal of creating compelling content, finding and develop topics for air, powerful storytelling techniques and ways to get the best out of each personality.  
Based on concepts from "Creating Powerful Radio - Getting, Keeping & Growing Audiences," 2007 Focal Press - (more at  http://www.creatingpowerfulradio.com/ ) and Geller's experiences coaching and training some of the world's top personalities, Geller will take you through the process to help you develop to the next level as an on-air personality.  As a bonus - Geller will share with programmers effective keys to help find and develop talent including techniques to help your personalities, announcers, and producers grow.  Based on the proven Powerful Radio Principles:  Tell the truth, Make it Matter and Never Be Boring - to inform, entertain, inspire, persuade and connect with and grow your audience.

The Spoken Word Rocks - Personality and Talk Hosting for Audio Media (Session ID: 344)
 - THE SPOKEN WORD ROCKS! Talk Show Hosting and Personality. Keeping with this year’s BEA theme of "Balancing Form & Content, as music radio morphs into niche formats and online, interest in talk and personality audio media is growing. Talk and spoken word is a place where talent can shine. But is talent something you’re born with or can it be taught? Whatever level,each individual can develop and improve. Because everyone can talk, most think that this is work is easy. But as in any profession, the great ones just make it LOOK easy!) It takes talent, but also craft, skill and training. In this practical workshop, you'll learn methods in use around the world to train talk and personality presenters to create compelling content, find and develop topics for air, get the best out of each writer, guest and personality and methods to NEVER LOSE A LISTENER. Based on concepts from "Creating Powerful Radio - Getting, Keeping & Growing Audiences," Geller takes you through the process for the on air personality, from a programmers view of finding and developing talent to working with the talk show personalities, on air announcers, interviewers and producers. Based on the proven Powerful Radio Principles, Focus, Engage, Opinion, Position & Storytelling to inform, entertain, inspire, persuade and connect with the audience

NAB SMALL MARKET SEMINAR

Big Ideas Seminar Series:

"POWERFULLY ENGAGE AND GROW YOUR AUDIENCE BY
M
ASTERING SOCIAL MEDIA -
T-Shirt slogan:   "If you want me to listen to you, then you have to listen to me."

Are you using social media? Are you fully taking advantage of all the ways to engage your audience? By successfully implementing social media, you add a powerful "extra canvas" to engage more powerfully with your listeners and grow your audience! Social media expert and international broadcast consultant Valerie Geller  shares low-cost, high-return social media tips expressly for small market radio, which, when done effectively, will result in greater audience engagement, ratings growth and advertiser response. 

Introduced by nationally syndicated host Doug Stephan - host, "Doug Stephen's Good Day"
 
RE: Content:   Expanding on material from "Beyond Powerful Radio - A Communicator's Guide to the Internet Age" (Focal Press 2011
www.beyondpowerfulradio.com ) - There are NO boring stories - only boring storytellers - These Powerful Radio techniques can help any station anywhere develop stronger content and learn to more powerfully engage with listeners. "Not enough time, not enough people and not enough money" are NOT excuses.   Small and medium market stations are in a unique position to super serve their local communities using social media.  This session will focus on how to understand and better use social media, (and it doesn't cost!)  to help cover your community, build loyalty, build clients and build audiences.
