New York, NY (PRWEB) March 09, 2012
eMedia Vitals (http://www.emediavitals.com), the essential online publication for digital media professionals, announced the launch of a new executive networking group, the Chief Digital Officer Council (http://www.chiefdigitalofficer.org). The goal of the CDO Council is to help magazine, newspaper and brand publishers to develop and fine-tune new strategic models for sustainable growth.
“Having run a high-growth digital media division supporting over 100 magazines at, I know what a hard job it is to make the digital-first transition,” said eMedia Vitals Publisher Prescott Shibles. “The CDO Council is designed to help media executives address that culture change and make a business pivot effectively and quickly.”
Chief Digital Officer Council members will receive the following benefits:
Peer group advisory: Each Chief Digital Officer Council member will be matched to a group of five to 10 other non-competitive members to help them share relevant expertise and knowledge.
Best practice exchange: Through events and a secure digital community, CDO Council members can share their experiences with other members, gaining important insights into how others are tackling common challenges and growing their digital businesses.
Proprietary research: CDO Council research will dig past the hype to uncover fresh insights and benchmarking data around topics such as tablet publishing and social media.
Access to expertise: Need advice on the best CMS? How to build a cross-platform editorial team? Whether to launch a private ad exchange? CDO Council Analysts are made available to members to answer questions specifically or direct them to the right people and resources to get the answers, quickly.
CDO Council members will have their first meeting in May, with peer group meetings beginning after.
Membership to The Chief Digital Officer Council is currently being offered by invitation only to the top digital media executives at magazine, newspaper and brand publishers. To request an invitation or for more information, please visit http://chiefdigitalofficer.org.
