Ed Keating, SIIA’s Content Division V/P: “Speaking to the 300+ participants, Ken shared his twelve trends for news that will shape the industry in years to come.  Given that this is an executive conference catering to VP and C level participants, this address was right on the mark in providing the strategic guidance and long range themes that our audience has come to expect from featured presenters.  Moreover, Ken also put together a breakfast preview session of his talk for a few dozen industry VIPs.  Both of these presentations were very well received and his keynote was the most tweeted session at the conference. We look forward to working with Ken in the future”.
  • Association of Alternative Newsweeklies Web Publishing Conference, Jan. 28. Willamette Week Publisher and former president of the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies Richard Meeker: “Ken Doctor’s presentation at our 2010 Web Publishing Conference was simply terrific. For two reasons: First, Ken’s a clear, thoughtful, engaging, and genuinely interesting presenter. Second, his analysis of our industry’s woes and opportunities is both broad bore and narrow guage. The result was a room chock full of riveted — and surprisingly hopeful — media executives”.
