The Media and Communications Department at University of Sydney invites you to join us on Friday May 2, at 2pm, for what promises to be a fascinating glimpse into the metamorphosis of Australia’s oldest media company.
Since 2006 Fairfax Media, publisher of The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian Financial Review and The Age, has experienced unprecedented change driven by the rise of digital media. CEO David Kirk’s aggressive acquisition strategy, including a merger with Rural Press Limited, has delivered Fairfax Media print, online and mobile audiences of over 6 million, worldwide.
Corporate Affairs Director Bruce Wolpe will discuss Fairfax Media's diversification and growth over the past several years; issues facing publishing and online markets; Fairfax’s strategic markers; and the evolution of the newspaper publisher into a digital multimedia company.
Bruce Wolpe is Director, Corporate Affairs, for Fairfax Media Limited, and is responsible for the company’s corporate communications, government relations and related activities. He joined Fairfax in 1999.
