Don’t Miss the MagNet Marquee
TV personality Taylor Kaye will interview Jane Francisco, Editor-in-Chief of Good Housekeeping magazine at the MagNet Marquee.
Jane will share her expertise on the challenges, highs, lows and successes of revitalizing heritage brands like Good Housekeeping and Chatelaine—as well as launching new brands such as Glow and Wish.
Find Out the Truth about Digital Transformation
Steve Maich will discuss the factors behind Rogers Media’s decision to retreat from print, and focus its resources on digital growth.
Steve will explain the tough choices and hard lessons learned from three years spent on the front lines of digital disruption—why this was the right decision for Rogers, and why it might not be the right cold sores decision for everybody.
The Globe & Mail‘s Simon Houpt will ask the tough questions and moderate this lively and frank discussion.

Representatives from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Media Development Corporation will have tables in MagNet Square and will take questions from the industry.
