About the EVENT
Writers, agents, publishers and institutional brands are all grappling with the same dilemma: how to produce high-quality books and state of the art digital content whilst at the same time judiciously managing their costs. Project management includes multiple internal and external connections and skillsets.
Take a glimpse into the crystal ball of publishing with three experts and understand how the ever-evolving role of creative collaboration will affect all of us in the future.
whitefox are 5 years old this Spring and will be celebrating with drinks for everyone after the talks.
Chris is Digital Director of the National Gallery. His role is to ask how digital changes what culture means, and how an old institution can change to meet the challenges of a connected world. Prior to joining the Gallery, he was Head of Digital & Publishing at the British Museum where he created a new blended model for publishing.
Ruth is Director of Business Development at Ingram Content Group. Ruth has played a key role in the establishment of CoreSource as the market-leading digital asset distribution system for publishers, as well as building publisher relationships for other digital platforms such as MyiLibrary (now part of ProQuest) and VitalSource.
