OCTOBER 14 MEDIA GURU: JAMES LEDBETTER, EDITOR OF INC. AND INC.COM

Jim Ledbetter -- the articulate veteran of business and political media properties -- is the Editor of Inc.Magazine and Inc.com since early 2014.  Ledbetter’s talk kicks off Quantum Media’s off-the-record,  “fireside chat”  Media Guru breakfast series programmed with the Harvard Business School Club of Greater New York for 2015/2016. He’ll explain how a 35-year old brand is relevant and  keeps growing even with millennial consumers through digital, print and events; and how the company continues to increase its influence in its (rather large) niche of  entrepreneurial and innovative private companies. For more about Jim and how to buy tickets, stay tuned. 

According to a recent extensive podcasted interview on Digiday,   Ledbetter says that companies like Inc. need to find  new models for publishing since admittedly, the “old ways are breaking down.”  For example, Ledbetter says, “Facebook is scary in some ways. And it is possibly planning some kind of power grab.  But if Facebook was capable of breaking your site and breaking your brand, it was probably going to break anyway.”  After all, says Ledbetter,  most media companies, including Inc. rely heavily on Facebook for traffic. And now, everyone must “function in an environment which ‘post-site.’
