The Age of Engagement with Content Creator Brian Saviano

Content creation is quickly becoming a way for many to exert their creative energy and kick start their entrepreneurial efforts. During this interactive live stream on YouTube, attendees can connect with a content creator while sharing their experiences launching and building engagement platforms.

Brian Saviano develops content for all ages in a variety of media. Since his first gameplay tutorials created in his grandparents’ office over 10 years ago, he’s been sharing stories while playing his favorite video games. Saviano brings his infectious humor, in-depth knowledge and relationship skills to everything he does.

The event will be broadcast live on the Abington LaunchBox YouTube channel.
