Professional Development

Executive Programme for Innovation and Change (EPIC) Logo
Executive Programme for Innovation and Change
FIPP with Oxford University’s Saïd Business School have created a new professional development programme – the Executive Programme for Innovation and Change (EPIC). 
It is designed for those with the responsibility to set the direction and strategy for a division, or the entire business - or anyone who is expected to foster innovation within their team, should consider attending the course.
The programme aims to help these managers strategically take their companies through these times of digital disruption. The benefits of this residential programme are numerous. It allows you to step away from the ‘day job’ giving you the space to think about the changes to our industry and the impact this has on your business. It offers you a forum to discuss industry challenges with like-minded peers.
The faculty comprises of contributors from across the wider University, external guest speakers and magazine media experts. There will also be exposure to innovative companies outside of our industry who will showcase their learning and experience.

Successful magazine brand management requires the coordination and integration of many disparate disciplines such as strategic planning, editorial, advertising, building the brand, sales and distribution, finance, international licensing and digital platforms. 
The FIPP MBMC is a practical, experience-based, modular programme. It covers the knowledge areas and management skills required by todays' publishing professionals. If you have the ambition and commitment to further yourself professionally and you want your brands to reach their full potential, you should attend this unique training course for the magazine media industry.

Digital Innovators Tour LogoDigital Innovators’ Tour
The brand new Digital Innovators’ Tour was an opportunity to experience the entrepreneurial spirit in the San Francisco Bay area and Seattle first-hand, and rub shoulders with your industry peers while learning.
FIPP and the co-hosts of the Digital Innovators’ Summit in Berlin - VDZ and eMediaSF - organised the first Digital Innovators’ Tour to San Francisco and Seattle in May. 
About the Tour
The San Francisco Bay area and Seattle is the world of Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Intel and Microsoft and many, many more. It is where many trends are seeded, and where opportunities (and challenges, to be fair!) for content businesses emerge.
On the tour participants heard directly from movers and shakers in the technology and digital media world. They visited start-ups, large technology companies and innovative media companies, met key people and felt the energy of innovation in San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Seattle first-hand. They came away with not only better insight into their operations, their views on the future and potential opportunities, but also with new-found energy and international business contacts.
