Technology is important.  The people engaging with the technology are more important.  It’s a simple equation – if you work on developing your people and a healthy work environment, they will perform their jobs better and the productions will reflect this commitment.  At this year’s SVG College Summit, we are excited to offer a unique Leadership Workshop conducted by the Gargano Leadership Group. Headed up by Chris Gargano, a veteran of the sports video industry on the professional team front (New York Jets, San Francisco Giants, Oakland Raiders) you’ll receive a crafted workshop designed to help you improve your communication skills, better serve, and understand your staff.  As a result, you will have the tools to create a more positive culture within your production teams.
