1. Innovation Mission
Our fourth and final Innovation Mission will take place Nov. 13-15 in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Chief Innovation Officer Jed Williams will take nearly a dozen media executives on visits to places like Matter, Pandora and to a design thinking workshop. (http://www.localmedia.org/event/2017-sf-silicon-valley-innovation-mission/). We’ll have tons of coverage of the visits along with key takeaways.
