• That you'll be learning about building and preserving your personal brand in a time of unparalleled media disruption

• That women and men alike support the leadership aspirations of women in publishing and will benefit from the talent packed in one space

• That students get in for only $50 and it's beyond worth taking a Thursday to get unprecedented access

• That you'll be getting business strategy insights from across multiple publishing industries, which are in different stages of technological transformations that will eventually shape all media

• That you'll be lunching with Exceptional Woman 2017 awardee Janice Min (@janicemin), who built the largest entertainment site in America today, outstripping Vanity Fair, Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone

• That you should make sure to get your promo codes if you belong to AAJA, JAWS, SJN, SPJ, WNBA

• That you'll be learning the latest in video trends from, among others, Facebook Live and Emblematic Group (home of the "godmother of VR")

• That you don't want to miss a minute, from the breakfast panel to the wine reception

• That you'll be sipping wine during our Changes in Book Publishing Happy Hour, nurturing your secret plans to publish your book while navigating the realities of life under the Big 5 (and the left curve from a maturing self-publishing industry)

• That we're living in a time of media and political re-engagement, and supporting the leadership aspirations of women and men is something that concerns all of us

• That we could go on... but we'll save it for March 30 on the lovely Clark Kerr conference center at UC Berkeley (with parking!)
