Make LA work for you

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

In LA old and new industries intersect and influence each other. Movies, Music, Advertising, Gaming, Mobile and all things digital.

This is the land of dreams, where cross pollination happens for real and being a hybrid is the norm.

Learn how to navigate this creative city from 4 amazing women. We’ll talk about finding your feet in LA in both established and bleeding-edge industries. No matter if you are a born Angeleno or just moved to the West. There are always good tips and tricks to learn.
