As newspapers, magazines and publishing houses around the world reel from the game changing impacts of the internet and social media, the Globe and Mail has invested in a bold new approach to its daily engagement with Canadians, a program called the Globe Catalysts, that may very well chart a path forward for other news organizations. Not only has it redesigned and rejuvenated its print edition, it has enlivened and enriched its online offering. It has also established a social media position that represents a serious commitment to build community out of the glorious babble of democratic discourse. Why the Globe took this historic step and how they did it will be the subject of ITAC’s next Board of Governors dinner gathering. Angus Frame, Vice-President of Digital Media at the Globe and Mail will join Jen Evans, Founder and Chief Strategist of Sequentia Environics to provide an inside view of how a 138-year old institution has transformed itself for the 21st century. This promises to be a lively discussion that may very well have an impact on how your enterprise views its content and its community. Don’t miss it!
