Duluth Symposium
Network and get insider tips and advice from seasoned video and media professionals that will change how you reach people and get your message out.  

The Video and Media Symposium is a training and networking event designed to help those in nonprofit organizations and small to mid-size business tap into the power of video and work with all forms of media more effectively to become better communicators, educators and marketers.  

If that's you, there are so many small actions, tactics, steps and processes you can learn to catapult your ability to reach more people, strengthen your brand, broaden your message, raise more money, and create more change. What better way to teach you the inside scoop than to put you in a room full of the area's top media and video professionals who have between them decades (and decades) of experience. You'll learn, network, ask questions, get answers, and leave armed with connections, a head full of knowledge, and an armful of instructions, sample resources, and of course a few freebies.
