Topics at Executive Voices reflect current realities, rapidly changing market conditions and future opportunities

Conference Venue: Offices of Seyfarth Shaw LLP, located at Willis Tower, 233 S. Wacker Drive | Suite 8000 | Chicago, IL 60606-6448

Executive Voices, the exclusive event for newspaper executives, returns to Willis Tower in Chicago, Dec. 10 and 11.

What makes Voices different?

The conference is limited to 75 newspaper leaders and decision-makers and features a no-holds barred conversation format — there are no PowerPoint presentations in sight. Instead, attendees can sit down in a room with their peers from around the country to find solutions to newspapers’ most pressing issues.

Discussions will be facilitated by six leaders, including:

  • Alan Fisco, president, The Seattle Times Company, Seattle, Wash.
  • Nancy Meyer, publisher and general manager, Sun Sentinel Media Group.
  • Bill Nagel, publisher, San Francisco Chronicle.
  • Francis Wick, president and CEO, Wick Communications.
  • Cameron Nutting Williams, regional publisher, Ogden Newspapers.
  • And, one  additional facilitator to be named.

Topics will reflect current realities as newspaper executives adapt to rapidly changing market conditions and future opportunities evolve.

Registration is now open, but don’t hesitate — the last two years sold out quickly!
