Conference Managing Change Studio Insights
Wednesday, May 05, ROOM M brought to you by MACKEVISION, 22:30

Studio Insights with Andrea Miloro

The Studio Insights track focuses on the business side of the industry, delving into topics that rarely get covered in any detail with people actually making decisions. Topics range from changing business models, managing risk, building a career as an executive, and creating a modern workplace environment to understanding how all the money is spent and how creative decisions ultimately get made. The format is an informal “in conversation” format.  The conversation is unscripted but new topics are selected each year to remain current with the industry and relevant to the year’s guests. The intent is to provide a forum for executives to share a bit of their perspective on the industry and for the audience to gain rare insight into a part of the business that many people never get to see.

Available until: Mai 31
