WSAB WEBINAR:  5 Steps to Solving Your Recruitment Challenges...

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

9:00 am Pacific Time

“I really need help with sales recruitment!”
“Where are the next generation of broadcasters coming from…?”
“I had two sales people leave this week…I’m desperate to find new sales people!”

All of these circumstances are familiar to us.  Right?  RECRUITING is tough – small market radio or large market TV the challenge is the same.  Where do we get new sales, production and on-air talent?

This webinar will focus on specific TACTICS:

  • How to always have a ‘talent bench’.
  • How to stay ahead of your recruiting requirements.
  • How to hire better employees – better sales people -better team members. 
  • Tactics you can begin to use the next day.

This webinar will feature Lucy Rice, the founder of Sales Sense - a company focused on recruitment and training of sales talent.  Lucy’s broadcasting career spans four decades with 25 years of management experience in Spokane and Seattle.  She spent 12 years with The Center for Sales Strategy, consulting stations from Orlando to San Francisco, from Tulsa to Honolulu. 

This is an interactive session – we encourage you to share your experiences and thoughts that assist broadcasters from around the state.  

The WSAB Recruiting Webinar is free to member stations, and $50 for non-member stations.  You must pre-register to participate by 5:00 pm on Tuesday, June 19, 2018.
