The 2008 JEGI Growth Conference

On Thursday November 14, I delivered a keynote presentation at the Jordan Edmiston Group’s 2008 Growth Conference in New York.

This by-invitation event is one of the few conferences bringing together senior-level private equity and venture capital investors with CEOs of top global and emerging media, information, marketing services and technology companies.

JEGI is an independent investment banking company for media, information, marketing and related technology. We worked with JEGI in Comscore’s recent acquisition of M:Metrics.

Speakers from the media world included Gordon Crovitz, former Publisher, Wall Street Journal; Martin Nisenholtz, SVP, Digital Operations, New York Times; Mike Galgon, Chief Advertising Strategist, Microsoft; Jonathan Hsu, CEO, 24/7 Real Media; George Kliavkoff, Chief Digital Officer, NBC Universal; Dave Morgan, former Chairman & CEO, Tacoda and current Chairman, Tennis Company; Rob Norman, Global CEO, GroupM Interaction (WPP).

There were some fascinating discussions regarding the global economic crisis and its impact on the media industry.

In my presentation, I discussed how the Internet is faring in these tough economic times and focused on three issues that are of vital concern to online marketers:

1. E-commerce Trends
2. The State of the Online Ad Market
3. The Rise of the Long Tail
