Video: Watch the workshop now

Live events and experiences can be a valuable way for publishers to connect with members, subscribers and readers, and are increasingly an important revenue stream with enormous marketing appeal.

In this hour-long practical workshop, journalist and live programme commissioner Simone Baird discusses what works (and what doesn’t) in the live space, what makes money, and how events can feed back into digital and print.

Simone Baird has been a journalist for 20 years, and worked with publishing groups on their revenue-generating live content programmes, including Time Out, Frieze and Delayed Gratification. She was head of Guardian Masterclasses from 2012 to 2014, rapidly growing the business and expanding the programme internationally.
