Enlightening commentary from two significant industry experts will enhance your Digital Publishing Bootcamp experience
The Digital Publishing Bootcamp will provide a lot of data, tips, and insight over its three-day duration. However, not all of this content will come from Mequoda Group. We’ve brought experienced industry members into the fold to provide additional insight on digital publishing success.
The first addition was Jim Spanfeller, the Bootcamp’s commence speaker. Currently, Spanfeller is the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Spanfeller Media Group (SMG), a venture-backed web-based content company he founded.
