On August 6, 7 and 8, LMA partnered with Think Perform and Amtil to host Transforming News Corporation.

The Australian icon, News Corporation Australia, along with newspapers the world over, has been faced with a rapidly changing dynamic – the emergence of highly competitive digital media and a generational shift.

Marcus Hooke presented at the breakfast seminars on  the strategies employed, his experiences, the highs, lows and the achievements of this major organisational transformation program with other senior executives.
