An inside Job, Tales from a Corporate Start Up
Rupert Turnbull gets on stage to talk about the future of publishing and on knocking down walls and shifting perceptions.
Rupert Turnbull, publisher of WIRED UK, takes his company as a prime example of a place where 'New Ownership' seems particularly resonant. "It seems that every day another area of life is opened up that allows me to take more control. WIRED is the start-up within – we are knocking down walls and shifting deeply entrenched perceptions. We are the annoying 'bottom' that is making a lot of noise and the 'top' seems to be listening – the ideal combination."
During his talk at PICNIC Festival 2012, Rupert tells the story of the journey WIRED has been through and is still going through: from traditional print magazine publisher to multi-platform brand director and feels this could be instructive to others setting out on a similar journey.
