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 Aftershock.

Participants will:
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 strategic partners.

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.
