Excel Is Not Enough: Skills for the Modern Publisher

Emma Barnes, CEO Snowbooks (Snowbooks)

Taking Place: Oxford Brookes University, Willow 1

The age of the manager is coming to a close.  Doing, not directing, is the secret to making a difference in organisations - particularly those in a mature industry coming under increasing fire from newcomers and disruptive technologies. You, personally, need to be able to not only use but  invent leading-edge technological solutions. Emma Barnes, co-founder and MD of innovative indie publisher Snowbooks, will share some real-world examples of the sorts of problems facing the modern publisher, and how technological competence can overcome them.
