Amanda Lee, content director with Melbourne’s 101.9 The Fox, which is part of Australian media group Southern Cross Austereo, will speak on “Content Leadership and Talent — The Perfect Marriage.” Lee is one of Australia’s leading content directors, and she will share why the bond between a content director and a station’s talent is like a marriage. She will explain how creativity, lived experiences and collaboration bring ideas to the microphone, where trust enables stories to be told, how providing honest and genuine feedback leads to growth and creating memories together unifies a team that becomes the ultimate radio pairing.
