Building communities

What publishers and membership organisations can learn from each other

The Event
Page Lizard is delighted to invite magazine publishers and membership organisation professionals to a small and exclusive evening event on July 5th. We will be celebrating summer with a rooftop terrace party from the Fleet Street headquarters of our hosts, Taylor Wessing, which enjoys spectacular views over The Thames and London.

But first we will feed your mind with some stimulating debate on the subject: Building Communitieswhat publishers and membership organisations can learn from each other.

We have a spectacular line-up of experts, including:

  • Patrick Fuller, formerly Group Director of Haymarket Consumer Media, who will explain how Haymarket invested in award-winning communities, such as PistonHeads, alongside its long-established specialist brands. He will reflect on the necessity of a modern media strategy for organisations, corporates and brands, for whom content is a now key part of their audience engagement.
  • James Roberts, from The Royal College of General Practitioners is one of the new breed of membership experience managers. He will summarise the latest thinking in building cohesive audiences for professional bodies and also look at the task facing media organisations who see themselves as the new curators of communities.
  • Peter Abraham, formerly Exec VP Econsultancy.com, has bridged digital transformation across traditional media, businesses and brands. He will summarise the key changes in the relationship between content creators – media and professional bodies-  and their audiences in a multi-channel world.

After a quick-fire and stimulating debate, including lots of audience participation, we’ll be holding a drinks reception on the terrace with plenty of opportunities for networking, debating or relaxing!
