Navigating the Media Aftershock
Members of the C-Suite (senior executives) faced colossal
cultural and economic changes over the last decade that arrived in lockstep
with social media. Business models for journalism media were broken. Corporate
brands – large and small – needed to discover new ways of communications
marketing and social selling.
Is it feasible for newsrooms and corporate brands to live
closer together as strategic partners? What happens if we lose the civic
function of journalism and, thereby, the health of democracy?
In this session, we’ll explore ideas to Navigate the Media
Learn about the Public Policy Forum and its study of the decline of the
traditional newspaper industry;
Hear how Google is investing in the publishing industry in Europe;
Discuss how corporate brands and journalism media can move closer together as
Sharon MacLean believes we need entrepreneurs and industry
leaders to thrive—and flourish—in our linked-up world. She is a veteran
communications strategist, experienced business woman, and contributing author
to the Amazon best seller, Build to Grow – 14 Thought Leaders Deliver
Engagement Strategies for the C-Suite.
As owner/publisher of a noted magazine for 21 years, Sharon
created content with forward-thinking solutions. She escaped the traditional
world of print publishing by selling the magazine in 2010 before it went broke.
The entrepreneur immediately was recruited to lead an investor-backed online
startup during the early days of social selling, helped launch an online
initiative last year in the green energy market, and coaches self-described
“dinosaur” business leaders who want to become Social CEOs.
