May’s meeting is a special opportunity to examine some of the work being done in the LAPPG community and a chance to learn how we can use relationships to take our careers to the next level.

Create the Relationship, Master the Follow Up

Whether you’re a freelance professional looking for work, a person who is at a And Actioncareer path crossroads, or someone who has a day job but really wants to be doing something else, it all comes down to who you know. The good news is, Jessica Sitomer is going to teach us a quick strategy for creating relationships. In order to “know them” you must follow up, which is the tricky part for most. She has a simple solution that will put you at ease, so you’ll never wonder, “I’m I being a pest?”

Jessica Sitomer,, is a long-time expert in the entertainment industry, having worked in all areas, from writing and acting to directing and development. She’s produced a sitcom pilot as well as two television series, Prescriptions, a show within a show for MTV, and Lights, Camera, Action, a reality show that is Top Chef meets The Apprentice for entertainment industry professionals. While working in development she was involved in the production of Crazy in Alabama, Antonio Banderas’ directorial debut. And yes, he is as charming in person as he is on screen.
She is an international speaker and has coached thousands of people pursuing careers in entertainment and beyond.  Jessica is the author of three books, including, “from Burnout to Bliss” and “And…Action! Powerful, Proven, and Proactive Strategies to Achieve Success in the Entertainment Industry” (available on Amazon). Claim your free eBook “Are You a Pain in the Ass?” now, at
