Check out what others have to say about our Momentum Summits!

  “I love how jam packed the Music Programming Momentum Summit was with incredible speakers and presentations from all sides of the industry – radio, records and artists, and it was laser focused on exactly the things I deal with on a day to day basis. The radio and records industry is constantly changing and this summit was exactly what I needed. I learned so much, new ideas were generated and it was fun! Plus, being in a room full of attendees who are all doing the same thing every day back home creates an awesome sense of community where ideas can be exchanged and networking opportunities abound. As always, I left the Momentum Summit refreshed and ready to implement what I’ve heard or ideas that have arisen out of discussions with others. A great big thank you as well to the labels for a couple of fantastic dinners and evenings with the artists!” – Ryan Springer, WBGL

“What a great event! I took (typed) a total of 14 pages worth of notes between the two days. So many great points and applicable ‘nuggets’ for our Team in Kansas City. Thank you for providing this and other productive events. You and your Team are really helping our industry reach so many people for Christ!” – Dave Gordon, Life 88.5 (KJNW)

“Taking more than you’re allowed to. That’s how I felt after getting on the plane home from the CMB Dallas Momentum Summits at Gateway Church. Thursday’s Millenials showcase and focus was extremely rewarding. The take-backs to my team in Delaware were plentiful. Friday’s Revenue/Fundraising focus was tremendous also. A great reminder of do’s and dont’s and also fresh new thoughts and ideas on the DNA of our fundraising team. Weave in some great music from Gateway, Blanca, Tim Timmons, and All Things New, some great food from Capitol CMG served up with Dr. Emmett Brown and Marty McFly, and some Pappasitos and Whirley Ball from Provident, and you get the idea, I took away way more than I should have been allowed to in 2 and a half days in Dallas. Thanks again CMB!” – Bill Lurwick, 88.7 The Bridge (WKNZ)

“Three of my team attended the Summits and were absolutely blown away with how much useful information they received. You just keep exceeding expectations!!!”  – Troy Kriechbaum, KVNE & KGLY
