The foibles and follies of celebs can be fun and entertaining, but social media and the Internet have changed the game, and a growing number of the famous (and infamous) are disturbed about stories that can stay "out there" forever.

Hear from our panel of New York's best-known and most respected gossip-hounds on what it takes to be successful in the field today.

Don't miss this chance to learn firsthand from media duo Rush and Molloy, who taught a generation of reporters that despite the temptations and stereotypes, you CAN write a gossip column with integrity! (Book signing of their book Scandal: A Manual follows the conversation.)

Here's your chance to hear from a leading television network executive with several decades of experience in navigating the corporate shoals.

Join us to learn all you need to know to find success in the corporate world. Stanley Bing (pen name of CBS communications honcho Gil Schwartz) reveals the tried and true secrets of getting hired and climbing the ladder to success.

Bing, a longtime celebrated columnist at Fortune, is also a best-selling author of over a dozen books on business strategies and careers, including 100 Bullshit Jobs and How to Get Them, and Crazy Bosses. He swears his latest tome: The Curriculum: Everything You Need to Know to be a Master of Business Arts (Harper Business, 372 pp.) will spare you the time, effort and astronomical tuition of an M.B.A. Brilliantly written and laugh out loud funny, Curriculum is jam-packed with tons of useful advice for both beginners and business pros.

Bloomberg Television host and Emmy nominated investigative journalist and financial expert Trish Regan leads the conversation as Bing holds forth on topics like: Self-Branding, Self-Marketing, Dealing with Difficult People, Handling PR Crises, Business Ethics, the Art of Presentation, the Art of Selling, and so much more!
