What's for Sale? The Commercialisation of Our Media Channels:

The October CAANZ PREScom Champion Speaker Series presents NZ’s leading journalists, commentators and industry heads, discussing the changing face of media and their response to the commercialisation and commoditisation of content.

The breakfast event will feature speakers renowned in their respective fields:
• Tim Murphy, former editor-in-chief of the New Zealand Herald, former chair of the national Media Freedom Committee and executive committee member of the Press Council;
• Ellen Reid, National Business Editor, Fairfax Media NZ;
• Duncan Grieve, freelance journalist and editor of culture website The Spinoff;
• Simon Wilson, Metro editor; and
• Alana O’Neill, Head of Integration, Mediaworks.

Each speaker will share their thoughts on commercial imperatives versus a purist approach, where the lines sit between earned and paid media, and the ramifications this has on agencies and their clients. The panel discussion will be MC’d by Ben Fahy, editor and associate publisher of NZ Marketing and

CAANZ gratefully acknowledges Kensington Swan Lawyers for their support.
