Two longtime friends gathered online to share their thoughts on how ideas are translated into something actionable or shareable. Both represent industries upended by the digital revolution.
Brian Kelly, the chief editor at U.S. News and World Report for the past 12 years, oversaw the venerable news weekly’s transition from print to digital in 2009. In our webinar, he addressed one of the most impactful results of that transition–the loss of traditional gatekeepers.
Rafe Sagalyn, partner at ICM Partners, discussed publishing’s hunger for great ideas, but noted the importance of combining ideas with effective packaging. Rafe also shared fascinating anecdotes about books and authors he has worked with over the years. Deftly maneuvering the conversation was local bookseller Nicole Magistro.
