Featured speakers include Dame Frances Cairncross, who will discuss her insights from working on the government-commissioned review into the future of news and quality content; Sean Pillot de Chenecey, author of ’The Post Truth Business’, who will focus on regaining consumer trust in a modern business climate of scandal, fake news and disillusionment; and Steve Wood, Deputy Commissioner, ICO, who will provide an essential guide to the future expectations on data privacy.

Richard Reeves, managing director at AOP, comments: “The Digital Publishing Summit is designed to provide publishers and advertisers with the opportunity to not only share insight, but to really get stuck into debating real issues and finding real answers they can take away and implement.
“Alongside some of our notable keynote speakers, we encourage delegates to attend the breakout sessions that are most relevant to them – whether that’s how to build growth through podcasts, manage content distribution, navigate the supply chain or sharing best practice for creating profitable subscriptions models, as an alternative to driving advertising revenue. As an industry, we’ve never worked better together to overcome the joint challenges we face and, this year I expect to see a strong focus on collaboration as the key to success.”
