Accomplishment of which Mark is proudest

Being given the chance to help drive the print and digital future of a number of the world's major news media companies. Add to that, winning INMA's Silver Shovel Award...that rates at the top of my proudest moments.

Accomplishment of which Mark is proudest

As INMA's mantra says, "sharing ideas, inspiring change". That's what I get from the association. The learning of/from other cultures and ideas from around the world. It's great to hear how other countries deal with similar problems and issues to mine. In addition, over the years, I have been lucky to build a great network of life friends! Invaluable!

Long-term challenges facing news media industry

Technology...tablets, mobile and wireless devices...how we use them to our advantage, how will they develop? How do we use the date we collect?Plus how we continue to offer added value in the shadow of rising newsprint costs. Not enough time is spent looking at the lifetime value of a reader. What value services/products do we offer people with whom we have a foot in the door already?
