Laura Wilson is account manager, jewellery, bridal and travel at Hearst’s Town & Country Magazine in the US.
Have patience, be yourself, work hard, collaborate with an open mind, and don’t be afraid to take some risks!
Breton Fischetti is senior director, commerce at Business Insider, based in the US.
Don't be afraid to try new things! If you look back at past Rising Stars, since winning their awards, most have made impressive bets on new and different things.
Francesca Wilson is now marketing manager for Immediate Media’s Radio Times, the UK’s largest selling quality magazine.
Think creatively. Be brave: don’t be afraid to speak up if you have new ideas! Use all the tools at your disposal to help you learn. Don’t forget to read around your discipline and keep up-to-date with the latest trends. To prepare for my trip to Toronto, and before speaking on the FIPP Rising Stars panel, I used the online resources at FIPP, read articles in marketing publications and met with several senior people from around the business to learn more about my company and the whole industry, including Immediate Media’s CEO, Tom Bureau.
Mieke Vlok is a journalist at Media24 Weekly Magazines in South Africa, where she writes for Afrikaans language Huisgenoot, the country’s biggest selling magazine.
Embrace even the most menial of tasks and don’t say no to anything, since everything can be a learning curve and expose you to something or someone worth knowing.
Don’t be afraid to ask or put yourself out there. If someone is doing something that interests you, send them an email asking for advice. If you need help with something, reach out to someone with the skills. You will be surprised how nice people and willing to help people are.
Matthew Stepanic is founding editor and publisher of Glass Buffalo as well as editor at Tanner Young Publishing Group in Canada.
Be prepared to change with innovations in the media industry, and don’t pigeonhole yourself in one speciality or role. It’s helpful to learn about all the aspects of the industry and publishing, so that you know best how your particular job can assist the other members of your team, such as designers, marketers, and salespeople.
