“I do a lot of speaking engagements and often get the sense that people are on information overload after several presentations. After mine, CMB did something I hadn’t seen before, using a professional moderator to engage the audience with thoughtful follow-up, unlocking real value. The entire conference had a learning vibe that was refreshing. Congrats to CMB for putting together a thoughtful event with great speakers, and first-rate content. Thanks for inviting me.”

Steve Goldstein

CEO, Amplifi Media/Co-Founder, SONIC Ai
“The CMB team hit this one out of the park.  From the surprise of having Louie Giglio share, to the top notch speaker line up, this was an amazing event.  I’m so glad a good portion of my team was there.”

Jeff Scott

Station Manager, WBGL
“It’s always a breath of fresh air to walk into a room full of passionate professionals. The Momentum Summits in Atlanta provided us with a wonderful lineup of speakers as well as ample opportunity to build relationships with others who walk in similar shoes. We are a blessed group of people to be called to do this work, and these summits make us better at it. So blessed!”

Jennifer Winborn

APD/MD, WPOZ Orlando
“Someone asked me what the value is of the CMB Summits.  Is it the content, the networking, the artist interaction?  My answer is, ‘yes’. It’s such an invaluable opportunity to unite as ad industry, and quite simply to make each other better.  We’re stronger together!”

Todd Amlin

Music Director, 104.9 The River
“You guys/CMB runs the best conferences in the industry….great speakers, engaged participants, and formatted in a way that ensures strong interaction between audience and speakers. In all, a terrific event I was honored to be part of!”

Alan Burns

President, Alan Burns & Associates
“It was such a joy to meet up with friends across the industry for the 2019 Atlanta Music/Programming and On-Air Momentum Summit. These events are packed with outstanding speakers as well as time sharing wisdom from individual stations. I came away with plenty of notes. I was rejuvenated to apply what the event equipped me to bring back to my station.  Outstanding station and personal investment. Thanks CMB!”

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…
