Becoming a Creative Leader in 2019:  10 Critical Skills You Must Master to Lead Creative People

Creativity is the currency of this generation and yet few leaders are equipped to inspire and lead creative people. There is plenty of information available about leadership, but very little on leading creative teams. In this insightful keynote session, Phil Cooke will reveal how to make the leap from filmmaker, writer, designer, or other creative role to become a leader of other creatives. You’ll walk away with 10 critical skills that will help you foster a culture that will attract and inspire creative men and women to accomplish amazing things.

The Pre-Production Process: Planning for Success

Join us as we explore what it takes to make sure your pre-production game is strong enough to support the project you’re dreaming of.  Room 15 – Alex Schwindt

How to Turn Your Weekend Services into Podcasts

Churches are continually seeking ways to reach people for the gospel. What used to be CD and tape recordings is now livestreams and digital downloads. In fact, the single largest growth is media consumption over the past three years is through podcasting. In this session, attendees will take a step-by-step walk through how to convert weekend services into podcasts in less than one hour of added workload. Minimum equipment requirements, hosting needs, and distribution will all be discussed as well.  Fireside Room – Josiah Way

Making Your Dream Their Dream: The Secrets to Pitching Your Ideas and Projects

Stop being held back. Now you can learn the art and skill of releasing your vision to the world.  Room 14 – Phil Cooke

Digital Storytelling

When it comes to creating projects that have the power to speak right to the heart there’s one aspect that trumps everything else, and that’s storytelling.

Producing Worship Through Digital Transformation

Creatives enjoy getting lost in the gear, cinematography, and production. Church creatives also enjoy presenting a final product that shares the gospel message to an audience.

So how does that impact a church creative team? This keynote takes a walk through the Bible, exploring how God uses creative people to present Himself to those searching for answers.
