On Tuesday 14 March 2017, 16:00 – 17:00 in the Olympia Room, Grand Hall we are hosting an event to discuss what are the challenges facing women today in the book industry, at a time that has seen a rolling back of women in the top positions?
Join us if you are looking for inspiration to develop your career and set you apart from the rest? Or need ideas and tips on how you can overcome those tricky conversations or situations? Or if you are considering a career in publishing and looking for guidance? Or already in a job and thinking about a change of direction?
Our panel will share with you their thoughts and personal experiences on how they’ve made their career in the book industry a success. Our panel comprises Denise Johnstone-Burt, Publisher at Walker Books, and Catherine Clarke, Agent, MD at Felicity Bryan Associates, Rebecca Lewis-Oakes, Managing Editor for Fiction at Egmont; Miriam Robinson, programme director for The Bookseller’s Marketing & Publicity Conference and Associate Director at The Literary Platform; and Anne Perry, Editor at Hodder & Stoughton.
