COVID-19 Update: Show Maker Symposium Debuts "I'm with the Crew" Free Webinar Series

Underscoring its commitment to serve as a voice and a resource for live event professionals that are negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Show Maker Symposium today announced the launch of a series of free, weekly webinars called "I'm with the Crew." The series begins at 2:00pm Eastern Time on Friday, March 27th, and runs weekly through May 8, 2020. Registration is now open at: zoom.us/webinar/register/4515850303533/WN_rgE7D9EpS3OQB4I3IfdcTQ.

According to Show Maker Symposium founder Jim Digby, the new webinar series takes the perspective of those who have any kind of supporting role in the live entertainment business and is intended to serve as a guided conversation on the many challenges these hard-working industry professionals now face.

"The series is designed to provide a very personal look at human nature and the adaptability that's required to get through this unprecedented time in our industry," Digby said today.

Amplifying that same message, Misty Roberts said, "We hope to shine a light on the importance of understanding and managing the holistic-self in order to find the strength to take action."

Hosted by Roberts and Digby, guided by mental health professionals Taryn Longo and Dave Sherman with weekly special guests, this live webinar series provides an opportunity to gain greater insight and control over how individuals can respond to these times and manifest the resilience to survive and start again when that time comes. This week's guest, Tamsin Embleton, has just released a 50-page guide on anxiety relief and self-isolation and is authoring the Touring and Mental Health Manual that is being supported by Live Nation.

New webinars will run on March 27, April 3, April 10, April 17, April 24, May 1, and May 8, 2020.

The Show Maker Symposium will focus principally on the foundational pillars of Gather, Learn, and Give Back, providing growth in an environment of mutual support, shared experiences, professional development, wellness, and philanthropy.
