The Communication Colloquium featuring Lambert is sponsored by the Communication Department and will take place in the Gordy Center Community Room.
With more than 20 years in the television industry producing and directing, Lambert's career began in the mid-eighties when she served as a producer/director for Video Impressions. She managed all aspects of program development, and productions included nationally-syndicated cable television programs, commercials, broadcast and cable spots and corporate programs. During this time, she also was a director of live television programming for both Warner Television and CBS-KMOX Television in St. Louis, Mo.
From 1987-1993, Lambert worked for Governors State University as a professor of radio and television arts and sciences. She also served as the director of television programming for the University's television studios. She produced and directed mostly tele-classes, which were broadcast on the National PBS Network. These were programs on everything from "Urban Dynamics," an in-depth look at inner city life in an urban area, to "Beliefs and Believers," a series on the various religions which are practiced in the United States.
Lambert moved into freelance work in 1993 by starting her own company, Fractal Productions, which she worked for a variety of clients in the Chicago area producing corporate and commercial pieces. In 2000, Lambert incorporated rightangle, inc. with a business partner, and she has been successful for the last nine years in producing high quality programming and commercials for various clients.
Her long list of professional awards include the Platinum First Place Telly Award for her McDonald's and Disney Entertainment Report #12, the National Arbor Day Award for her work in children's programming, and an invitation to the National Educational Film and Video Festival. Her awards list also includes the Helen Cody Baker Award from the Y-ME Breast Cancer Foundation and the Credit Program of Excellence Award from the National University Continuing Education Association.
Lambert earned her Bachelor of Arts in Mass and Speech Communications from the University of Missouri, and she has completed Master's classes in Broadcast Communications/Directing at Governors State University.
