It’s that time again! Time for the January 2016 edition of On Stage with RB - let's kick of the new year right, shall we?
Every month our Founder & CEO, RB, in an online webinar setting brings on special guests who work in the industry, such as filmmakers and executives to offer advice to our community. Plus, he goes over the best way to use Stage 32 to help your career. Afterwards, he opens up the floor to you for a live 90 minute Q&A session about anything and everything in the industry. Best of all, this is FREE, exclusively for Stage 32 members... and it certainly is educational and entertaining!
Each On Stage with RB has hit capacity with 2,000 members attend from all over the world!
Date: Thursday, January 21, 2016
