Sveriges Tidskrifter/Swedish Magazine Assocation

I became CEO of the Swedish Magazine Association since 2009, before which I was CEO of a publishing group owned by de Telegraaf and Hearst. The international aspects of publishing have always been important to me, so being in involved with FIPP was a natural choice.

As a national association, membership allows us to stay on top of latest global industry trends, participate in the sharing of knowledge between members and in industry conversations, and build international bridges through the networking opportunities membership brings – to the benefit of our members in Sweden and the industry at large.

I highly encourage participation with FIPP and its network – in today’s world, no-one, large or small, is immune to what happens in other markets and sectors. FIPP membership offers you a platform to learn, share and engage with counterparts from around the world. With so much changing in the industry, being part of the FIPP network is invaluable for reasons mentioned above, and more.

Asociación de Revistas de Información (ARI)

ARI and my association with FIPP ...ARI has been a FIPP member since its launch back in 1977 and I have been involved with FIPP since I joined ARI in September 2011. In 2012, I got further involved when I became a member of the FIPP Research Committee and in September 2013 I became a proud member of the FIPP Board.

We use FIPP membership in many ways ...ARI and Spanish media owners benefit from all the great studies, reports and market information provided by FIPP. We learn, build knowledge and get a lot of ideas from every FIPP event. From the World Congress, Ibero-American Conference and Research Forum to others, these offer fantastic opportunities for us to learn more about the latest thinking in our industry. For instance, I feel insights we get from events are ahead of where we are as a market, so it helps us to better understand challenges and opportunities and to compete successfully.

I encourage others to join and engage ...If you are in the magazine media business, whichever format you use to reach and engage your audience, you have to join FIPP. You will benefit tremendously form the knowledge, experience and ideas shared in the FIPP network.

Cue Ball, LLC

Cue Ball joined FIPP back in ... 1999? (Gosh, has it been that long?) Our practice relies upon networking and marketing, and by attending and speaking at FIPP events our practice took off. FIPP membership is an endorsement that a company is serious about cross-border publishing. As publishing has become a truly global industry, Mike Greehan and I encourage anyone in the content business – print, digital, video and marketing – to become FIPP members.
