As the principal sponsor once again of B&T’s 30 Under 30 Awards, we thought it would be a good idea to find out why NewsMediaWorks is so attracted to the event by having a chat with its marketing director, Charlie Murdoch (pictured below).

Charlie Murdoch

Why is the 30 Under 30 Awards such an essential industry event?

We see it as a way to recognise and celebrate the best future leaders, and the awards align with the values of NewsMediaWorks. The quality and achievements of the best of the under-30s is inspiring to everyone and helps promote industry excellence, which is also a key role of NewsMediaWorks through similar initiatives.

 

What inspires NewsMediaWorks to continue being a principal sponsor of 30 Under 30?

The news media sector is known for investing in high standards and ethics to deliver quality, trusted journalism, and 30 Under 30 aligns with our industry’s commitment to encouraging and rewarding best practice. We’re also delighted to see the program expand to a daytime forum in 2017.

 

How important are young people to the industry?

Young talent is essential to drive change and innovation in the industry and the news media sector is no different. Every year, our publishers invest in attracting young people who bring a new perspective and skills on the delivery of quality journalism.

 

What’s the best advice you could give to a young gun in this industry?

Be open to new ideas and ensure your clients think of you as a true partner in their business.

 

The 30 Under 30 Awards will take place at Ivy in Sydney on Thursday 27 April. Tickets to the event can be purchased here.

We’ve even thrown in a daytime forum to compliment the awards, called Towards 2030.

Thanks again to our awesome sponsors and judges for making the whole thing possible.
