Description

#BPUinsights

Digital disruption within the media industry has been – and still is – a huge talking point amongst media professionals, investors, and the everyday Australians who consume content on a daily basis. With a rapidly digitising media landscape – where intersections between differing industries and new technologies are constantly in formation – how can working professionals navigate through such disruption, and glide effortlessly towards new forms of integrated communications?

In our second Thought Leaders of 2016, we bring you Fashion Forward: Disrupting the Media Landscape. With keynote speaker Edwina McCann, Editor-In-Chief of Vogue Australia, we’ll explore how technology, cross-sector collaboration, and entrepreneurism are becoming the beating heart of Australia’s media industry.

Stay on top of changes within the industry, now!
