Newspaper boss to speak in Hume

March 7, 2014 by  

The Editor in Chief of The Age newspaper will be the guest speaker at Hume City Council’s next business breakfast.

Andrew Holden will speak to guests about the changes in technology, such as the rise in popularity of mobile devices, how they have affected media groups in Australia and how they can affect businesses in general.

Before moving to The Age in 2012, Holden spent several years in newspapers in New Zealand – including a stint as editor of The Press newspaper in Christchurch, which included the city’s devastating earthquakes. He has more than 30 years’ experience in journalism.

As part of his talk, Holden will discuss how The Age has responded to changes in the way people get their news and broadened its use of technology to engage with readers. The breakfast will also be a chance to discuss how any business can use technology such as websites or social networks to their advantage.

Company owners from Broadmeadows who are thinking about attending might like to make an order for business card printing beforehand to ensure their contact details are up to date. Digital business cards are also useful with the increasing use of technology, making it easy to network with new clients.

The breakfast takes place on Friday 28th March at The Meadows in Northcorp Boulevard. Places can be booked through Hume City Council.
