  • Chad Gordon  (Partner) - “I had a great time at the conference.  It’s good to be in Leimert. It’s good to see people in the community that are creating content, that have the curiosity about the growing world of tech and entertainment, and are looking to make sure stories are created that represent us.”


  • Octavia Reliford (Business Owner) - "I can truly say that I was pleasantly surprised!  Regarding the conference, I particularly received a ton of doable nuggets from the digital Marketing workshop that I can immediately incorporate into my daily business practice."


  • Jason Lewis (Publisher) - People who work in media will greatly benefit from attending the TEC conference.  As the Publisher of the Los Angeles Standard Newspaper, I have to create a strong web presence and have a great knowledge of social media platforms so that I can maximize the publication’s reach.  Some of the tools mentioned by panelist let me know that I am going in the right direction to help build my business."


  • Alton Glass (Panelist/Writer/Director/Producer) - “My experience here at the TEC Conference has been awesome!  To be able to see so many people from different backgrounds come together as artists, technicians, from different sides of the business - from content creators, all the way up to executives and investor - is amazing.  It's exciting to see people in the Leimert community commit to enhance, grow and get insight.”
