John Wilpers and Juan Señor, editors of the Innovation in Magazine Media 2015-2016 World Report are available as presenters. They can help you with the roadmap to a profitable, expansive, exciting future for your editorial, sales and web teams.
According to John and Juan, the key to generating and exploiting innovation is to commit to changing your corporate culture: “Commit to becoming digital-first, to integrating your teams, to encouraging and rewarding innovative thinking. Commit to collecting data and interpreting it and using it to help guide editorial and advertising decisions. Commit to empowering your staff to think innovatively, to take risks without fear of failure or retribution.”
They urge media companies not to do this in a top-down fashion: “Involve your entire organisation. Recruit volunteers from every department (they know a lot more than you do about what’s working and not working on the ground).”
If you’d like to create a culture that generates ideas, the Innovation in Magazine Media editors can share these ideas with your teams. They can provide a deep-dive into the details of proven successes and apply the lessons.
A GREAT TEAM
In decades of consulting around the world John Wilpers, senior director (USA) and Juan Señor, partner (UK/Spain) of the Innovation International Media Consulting Group have helped companies make the commitment to change. That transformation alone re-energises the organisation. It paves the way for subsequent innovations that result in red ink becoming black, demoralised staff becoming enthusiastic change agents, and a dark future becoming promising and exciting.
John and Juan have consistently scored very highly at all FIPP events they have taken part in, including the FIPP/VDZ/eMediaSF Digital Innovators Summit in Berlin.

“The notion that print is dead is not accurate. I think print isn’t dead, it’s just different. Gone are the times where you can operate with an inflated rate base or 12 times per year as a standard. And I think gone are the days too where you were just concerned with whether there was enough fax paper in the machine where you got all of your signed insertion orders back. Those days are behind us. But print for many companies, Bonnier included, is still profitable. It’s just not at the margins that we once enjoyed. And I feel strongly that brands that sit one or two in a category or vertical can thrive if managed correctly.” - Eric Zinczenko, CEO, Bonnier Corporation12th Mar 2018 Features
