Really great! Very interesting speakers and great panels. I enjoyed the sessions a lot where we worked with people from the newspapers on different problems. Many different inputs that made me learn more than what I expected.Digital Growth Summit 2019 Participant
Insights from previous speakers
What is the role of personalisation?
Personalisation is a very interesting topic but we have to remember that people like and seek that editorial insight and curation. We want to steer clear from full personalisation and strike a good balance between content readers are looking for and editorial selection.Eva Roa, Senior News Product Analytics Manager
The New York Times
What is the biggest challenge for a newspaper publisher?
The biggest challenge will probably be to show the value of being a subscriber. Value creation should be the number one element to mark the difference between paid subscriptions and the free experience.Tor Marius Espedal, Head of Customer Experience
How can newspapers create a relationship with their audiences?
Newspapers have always been good in building strong relationships, but they have to learn how to do it in a digital way which is challenging. The key will be to generate engagement and create habits in your audience to build that connection and increase subscription revenues.Mathias Douchet, Director of Product
