SABEW is the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing; the group’s mission is to recognize and pursue “the highest standards of economic journalism.”
I am humbled to be one of their featured speakers at this year’s Fall Conference (at Reuters HQ this Thursday). Member are a savvy, no BS group of professionals covering business, markets and economics, so I best bring my A-game.
My inquisitor for the afternoon will be Caleb Silver, the Editor-in-chief of Investopedia. We will be discussing the role of blogging, podcasts, social media in the financial press + asset management.*
I expect this to be good fun, with an entertaining and lively conversation + audience Q&A.. It is open to the public and you can register here.
Thursday, October 25 • 4:00pm – 4:45pm
Barry Ritholtz, founder of Ritholtz Wealth Management, best-selling author and Bloomberg columnist, helped launch the golden age of financial blogging in the late 1990s and built a media empire inside a wealth management business. Find out what makes his content so different than other business media and why it’s a key component of his firm’s success. Barry will be interviewed by Caleb Silver, editor-in-chief of Investopedia and a member of SABEW’s executive committee of its board of directors.
Very cool, I am looking forward to it!
