Expand your skills while home
Glen Mulcahy, founder of Titanium Media and an internationally-renowned mobile journalism trainer, has played a key role in the development of the Mobile Creator Summit, and commented about the events leading up to the creation of the Mobile Content Creator Summit: “We have spent the last few weeks watching in dismay the spread of Covid-19 and wondering what we can do to support our community. Like so many around the world, our teams are working from home and finding ways to get through this. As we are all painfully aware, all the major events we would traditionally participate in, or have representation at, have been cancelled and the impact on our friends and colleagues is devastating.”
“However we are not powerless. In these unprecedented and uncertain times there is something we can do to help the people who are in need of guidance and inspiration, and we’re in a unique position to help them to be as productive as possible while refining and expanding their skills. I’m honored to be a part of the team with FiLMiC and Luma Touch that will teach new, valuable skills and help put people back to work in these trying times.”
