The upheaval and disruption of legacy media outlets by new media and tech platforms shows no signs of slowing. While more people around the world are consuming news than ever before, the cost and effort involved in producing real, high-quality news has never been higher.

In this ever-changing digital landscape, The New York Times led the way, becoming a different kind of media company — a nimbler, faster, more reader-centric company – that people around the world are prepared to pay for.

How has the digital revolution altered the playing field? What should media companies do to tailor their strategies to reach their customers? What opportunities and challenges have these changes brought to The New York Times? Mr. Dunbar-Johnson will address these and other issues at the Chamber's seminar on 27 February.

Moderator: Prof Cherian George, Professor, Director of Centre for Media and Communication Research, Department of Journalism, Hong Kong Baptist University

Speaker(s) Stephen Dunbar-Johnson is President, International of The New York Times Company and is responsible for the oversight and strategic development of the Times Company's international businesses. He was appointed to his current role in October 2013 to lead the global expansion of the company.

Previously, Mr. Dunbar-Johnson was Publisher of the International Herald Tribune (IHT), a position he assumed in January 2008. Before joining the IHT in 1998, he held various business development roles in the U.K., France and the U.S. over 12 years at the Financial Times.
