Got talent? You’ll need it to be successful in today’s publishing world, but finding it and knowing it can be a challenge.

Anyone interested in the topic can attend a roundtable discussion this fall. Led by our CEO, Haj Carr, and two other publishing executives, “Building A Publishing Dream Team,” is among many events being held at The Folio: Show, a two-day media event and awards ceremony at the Hilton Midtown in New York City.

The roundtable discussion will be on the first full day of the event, October 9, from 11:15 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Haj, who we know and love for his employee-centric approach, once said something like, “Employees can’t be just cubicle dwellers who clock in and out. They need to be engaged people—talented, of course—but also fundamentally curious.” Conventional writing and design backgrounds, he often tells us, are no longer adequate.

And he must be right.

Employees can’t be just cubicle dwellers who clock in and out. They need to be engaged people—talented, of course—but also fundamentally curious.

One of the B2B publications under the Trueline umbrella, Vanguard, is a finalist for the FOLIO: Eddie & Ozzie Awards—a tradition we’ve kept for the fourth year running. The award recognizes excellence in magazine editorial and design across the entire publishing industry.

Of course, our publications aren’t the only good ones. During the panel, Haj will be joined by Gabrielle Korn, editor-in-chief of Nylon, a pop culture and fashion media company; and Constance Sayers, president of Government Executive Media Group, a publication that profiles government executives.
