Looking forward to talking on a pet topic of mine, The Future of Publishing.



The publishing industry has had a tough time over the past few years… please join us for a conversation of what has changed and what needs to change for publishing to be successful moving forward.

Spiros Kotsialos, a veteran of 18 years in publishing will talk about the new business models that are emerging and the fundamentals of publishing moving forward.

For those not in publishing it is a great chance to understand how new business can tap into these new opportunities.

WHEN:    Wednesday 5th February
TIME:       6pm – 8pm
WHERE:  65 Hume St Crows Nest
THE SPEAKER: Spiros Kotsialos

Spiros has held senior digital positions at some of the world’s largest publishing companies, including Digital Delivery GM at News Limited, Digital and Innovation Director at Harper Collins, as well as roles at Fox Entertainment, Allen and Unwin and Random House.

He believes that in order for publishers to survive they must serve more channels and think differently about how they create products.

Currently he is working on creating new technologies and brands aiming to challenge the way news is presented.
