Keynote Speaker Announcement, Broadcasters Meet Podcasters, and Pre-Con fun!

Greetings PM Family,

We are less than a month away from the big event! Podcast Movement is right around the corner. We will temporarily part ways with the themed newsletters over the next few weeks to stay focused on the nitty gritty.

This week’s newsletter features the announcement of our last keynote speaker, the Broadcasters Meet Podcasters track presented by Jacobs Media, Ignite! Podcast Movement, and we’ll close with a reminder on our pre-conference events on Tuesday, August 13.

PM19 Welcomes Patrice Washington as Keynote Speaker

Patrice Washington is a wife, mother, award-winning author, podcaster, transformational speaker, hope-restoring coach, and media personality committed to redefining the term “wealth” for our generation. As the founder of Redefining Wealth and The Earn More Money Movement for Women, she has built a thriving sisterhood of high-achieving women committed to creating a powerful life vision that embraces wellbeing in their careers, relationships, homes, health and personal finances.

We have been fortunate to watch Patrice go from attending Podcast Movement two years ago in Anaheim, to launching her podcast, and then returning as a breakout speaker the following year in Philadelphia. Patrice’s show continues to grow and have an impact on her listeners all over the world!

It is a huge honor for Podcast Movement to welcome Patrice to the main stage. She embodies the overall spirit of podcasting through her diligence, resilience, hard work, and treating others well.

We know that Patrice is going to share some insights that will be a breath of fresh air for any aspiring or new podcasters, as well as veteran podcasters who might be feeling stuck. Please consider tweeting to Patrice to let her know that you are excited to hear her story and advice on the main stage at Podcast Movement next month!
