In this special event, Bruce Upbin, Managing Editor for Forbes, will visit the chapter to discuss how news sites are adapting to the rise of mobile and social media. In Forbes’ case, the transformation has led to remarkable online growth over the past year, a redesign of the magazine and the launch of its innovative contributor model.
Following the twenty-minute talk, Upbin will host a 30-minute “Ask Me Anything” question and answer period for attendees. Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes at a Forbes editorial meeting? What types of pitches resonate with major magazine reporters? Here’s your chance to quiz a managing editor at one of the top business and financial publications in the world.
