SIIA Content Forum 2006

Come join us May 15 – 16, 2006, in San Francisco for the SIIA Content Forum Conference to be followed by the Codie Awards. Newstex has been nominated for the “Content Newcomer of the Year Award“. We look forward to attending our first Codie Awards and maybe bringing home some hardware. Stay tuned!

I’ll be participating on the “Licensing Models, Distribution Strategies and Negotiations that Work” panel Tuesday, May 16 at 1:30 pm. Joining me on the panel are:


Jonathan Hoy, Strategic Alliance Manager, LexisNexis Group

Randy Marcinko, Chief Executive Officer, Marcinko Enterprises


Marcia Taylor, Content Development Manager, Business Wire

This is designed to be an interactive role playing panel, acting out case studies of negotiations between a content licensor (That would be Marcia) and a distribution/license partner (That would be me). I keep thinking of my improv class from Drama School and why I never became an actor, but I know Marcia, Jonathan and Randy will save me.

If you have any suggestions for topics or case studies for this panel please pass them on.
