Publishers Training Programme 2023 - DAY 1 How to thrive in times of crisis


Join us to learn all you need to know to make your publishing business future-proof. The world continues to evolve and introduce new challenges, which are also felt in the publishing industry. Challenges, however, also give way to opportunities. Publishers play an integral role in society. Because it is about more than mastering social media and reaching readers or buyers, but also about taking a stand, raising voices, empowering freedom of speech and promoting a diverse range of authors. The publishing industry has already proved its resilience – and can continue to lead the way in the future.
