CEO Roundtable

Every year in Autumn we are delighted to host a CEO Roundtable at the Digital Growth Summit. Last year, culture change emerged as the number one challenge. That’s why this year’s CEO Roundtable will address this key challenge in a remote setting as part of our Future of News webinar series. In particular, we will focus on the importance of the Day 1 mentality, the philosophy of continuous innovation popularised by Jeff Bezos.

Would you like to learn how to introduce this “Always Day 1” culture in your organization?

Join us on December 1st at 4 PM Brussels Time | 3 PM London Time | 10 AM New York Time for a 1 hour CEO Roundtable. Discover how news organisations are fostering a Day 1 mentality to thrive in such unpredictable times. The roundtable will be moderated by Twipe’s CEO Danny Lein.
