Media Financial Management Association (MFM) announces its October Distance Learning Seminar, Mining Data for Hidden Revenue. The hour-long session will focus on ways to analyze existing data to find new revenue sources along with other strategies to close the gap between traditional and budgeted revenue streams. Speakers for the session are Karin Bleiler, Senior Vice President, Revenue Management and Andrew Thompson, Senior Vice President, Business Development, Symphony MediaAI; Alison Young, Senior Director, Accounting Operations, The E.W. Scripps Company; and John Huncke, SVP Strategy and Business Development, Starz. The session will be held Thursday, October 15, at 1:00 p.m. ET.
As the coronavirus pandemic and economic conditions of 2020 impact industry revenue, media and entertainment organizations are seeking innovative strategies to adapt. During this session, attendees will learn how to leverage existing data to optimize their revenue strategy, allowing them to close out 2020 in a stronger financial position.
“Media entities have had to stretch, to embrace new strategies for revenue generation during this extraordinary year,” said Mary M. Collins, president and CEO of MFM and its BCCA subsidiary, the media industry’s credit association. “We are looking forward to hearing successful, real world approaches to this challenge from our panel of experts.”
