432 - Shop Talk with Aaron Sechrist and Heather Sakai

David Defeo

WMC Fest starts today so we have this year's emcee, Aaron Sechrist, and Chief Inspirational Officer, Heather Sakai, join us for a  special Shop Talk for a behind the scenes look at the weekend you can't afford to miss. WMC Fest has revamped their entire festival and taken a gamble by focusing on building their attendees skills with workshops instead of solely leaning on the big names of the design world to give talks hour after hour. While the friendships you forge in Cleveland are the most important part of this event... is that what people want? Will WMC Fest attendees see the value in these classes and interactions or do they still want to hear from their heroes in the design world? It's only though trial and error that we uncover our template for success and with friends like Mark, Aaron, and Heather as our Fest Sherpas, WMC Fest will become an invaluable tool in doing just that. We'll see you in Cleveland!
