Zoom Meeting


Join IABC Houston on Thursday, Jan. 28, from noon to 1 p.m. for a virtual fireside chat with Lisa Respers France, a senior writer for CNN's entertainment team and former host of the "Lisa's Desk" franchise. Lisa previously held positions as a reporter at the Los Angeles Times and the Baltimore Sun, and as editor for St. John's University's magazine in Jamaica, New York. Her short stories have appeared in two anthologies, "Baltimore Noir" and "A Hell of a Woman."

She's an avid reader, music enthusiast and all-around inquisitive person -- which is just a nice way of saying she's nosy.

Lisa joins us to talk about the heart of journalism and storytelling -- everything from writing on a tight deadline to navigating interviews with big personalities (and their gatekeepers) to tactfully telling the inside scoop. She’s covered everything from Shark Week to Shondaland, Queen Bey to OJ, and yet keeps her "Hi, I’m Lisa from Baltimore” personality on point. It's her business to get in people's business, and she'll share her tips for telling the scoop-worthy stories about the big personalities at our own companies.

This webinar is FREE for members and students, and $15 for non-members. Register today! You will receive an email confirmation from IABC Houston with the Zoom login information.
