The 3rd annual Folio: C-Summit kicks off with a networking luncheon and a look at workplace trends in today's gig economy from keynoter Jody Greenstone Miller, co-founder and CEO of Business Talent Group (BTG).
We’ve all heard how the gig economy is upending the way people work—and the magazine media industry is no exception. By 2020, independents are projected to represent more than 40% of the workforce, and more than 50% of businesses see accessing independent talent as part of their short-term future. The rise of a powerful, agile and highly sought after freelance economy promises to be one of the most transformative forces shaping businesses today. MBO Partners’ latest research now pegs the number of full-time gig economy workers earning $100K+ incomes at 3.2M, a 64% compound growth rate between 2011 and 2016.
As Keynote, Business Talent Group CEO Jody Miller will share ways that leading companies are taking advantage of the gig economy, and explain how and why CEOs and magazine media publishing executives should incorporate independent talent into their management strategy.
Optimizing business operations, managing new acquisitions and retaining top talent are on every media exec's mind. Balancing all three in a constantly changing industry landscape can be difficult; learn how system design can influence outcomes at your business.
Technology is transforming every phase of the business. It’s not just incremental, it’s central to your organization—and critical to your success. What’s needed is an approach that acknowledges this new dynamic, and one that allows you to manage current operations while also pivoting to meet new opportunities in a disruptive environment. A lot’s at stake: Database technologies, programmatic advertising, marketing automation and much more, are big investments. Hear successful methodologies, essential perspectives and big ideas from your executive peers—and share your own.
We’ll cover the new models of leadership (inside and outside our industry) that exemplify modern media businesses, and are also driving revenue and transformation, as well as top-level practices in effective cost management in a complex multidimensional environment.
The lifeblood of media these days is innovation and iteration. There are many opportunities, but only so many manageable priorities. Join in a conversation about how to maximize what you do next.
We’ve talked about strategy and leadership, and how technology is a key for driving revenue. Now we’ll pull it all together and apply it with real-world examples and a look around the corner at what the best thinkers and doers in the field see for the next year, as well as farther down the road. From consumer-side revenue to data, live events to non-endemic partnerships, we’ll set you up for what’s coming in 2018 and beyond.
