Did you think I’d crumble? Did you think I’d lay down and die?

B2B Expert Tim Brooks to speak at MAGFEST


Tim Brooks, former CEO of The BMJ (British Medical Journal), looks at how B2B publishers channelled their inner Gloria Gaynor to get beyond print and back into growth. A success story that many consumer publishers could learn from.

Tim Brooks launched his own B2B business, Media Week Ltd, with two friends in 1985. As MD or CEO he has since managed media properties including the Guardian, The BMJ, NME and Marie Claire. Tim is currently chairman of NLA Media Access, which manages copyright on behalf of all the UK’s newspapers; a director of Pharmaceutical Press; a visiting fellow in Strategy and Entrepreneurship at London Business School; and Chairman of PPA Business. Come along on April 26 to hear from Tim Brooks and our other fantastic speakers.

MAGFEST Ireland is a new and exciting event for all those interested in the Irish magazine media business. It’s a unique conference and festival experience to celebrate all-things-magazine, an event where the world of Irish magazine media comes together to explore, advance, and celebrate what we have done, what we are doing, and, most importantly, what we do next.

MAGFEST Ireland is a very special celebration of Irish magazine publishing with memorable keynote speakers and vibrant discussions; an unparalleled opportunity to hear from and meet the people who really make magazine media so special.

Collaboration and networking is really important to us so we are starting with a MAGFESTlunch at 1pm and the business sessions will finish up around 5pm with MAGFEST Cocktails when you can catch the speakers for those unanswered questions and meet up with your colleagues in other magazine media companies.

Join us in Dublin on April 26 for an afternoon of exploring, advancing and celebrating the best of Irish magazine media.
