 3️⃣ Conversation:

Inclusive Creators panel -@ Culture Shift Silicon Valley

At Culture, shift Jeff Clanagan, President of Heartbeat Productions, made a key point: “While content is king, distribution is the emperor.” This insight struck a chord as a reminder to share your story or initiative (and this newsletter). It gives it life.

From an entertainment sector perspective, Nate Parker, founder and CEO of an innovative new platform Mansa.com, resonated by sharing the nuance, "Advertising video on demand is exploding. People are tired of paying for another streaming service, but people are in if you can get it for free with ads."

These takeaways reflect the conference's vibrant discussions, inspiring us to innovate, collaborate, and shape a brighter future!
