There are only 7 days left for blockbusting Ciklum Mobile Partner Conference “What’s APPening Next – The Shifting Landscape of Mobile” to take place on 27 September 2012 at Thistle Marble Arch Hotel in London. Today’s breaking news is that Trinity Mirror, one of the UK’s largest newspaper publishers with an award winning portfolio, are joining the ranks of our visionary speakers.
Matt Colebourne, Director for New Businesses at Trinity Mirror, will take the floor to candidly look at the current challenges and opportunities facing old media organisations and what they are doing to reassert their pre-eminence.
Trinity Mirror have established a completely new division to work on the delivery of new, digital businesses. The New Businesses Division, under Director Matt Colebourne, has the resources and budget to design, build and deploy many new businesses over the next 18 months and has budgeted to deliver eight new projects within the next year.
The Division is fully supported up to board level within the group and has the ability to easily reach the entire Trinity Mirror audience with its new products and services. This puts it in a unique position when compared with most other startup-type operations; although the division operates very much in a startup mode with rapid development cycles, innovation, individual responsibility and creativity it has the ability to cheaply and quickly reach a massive audience with its offerings. And Matt is ready to share some of the ins and outs of how an “old media” organization can successfully go digital and be ahead of competition via innovative business models. Reserve your free seat now to hear Matt’s speech and feel the pulse of the UK mobile industry.
After an early career in the software industry, Matt moved into the internet, media and telephony space with DoubleClick in 1997 and has, since then, built, run and sold several high-profile businesses.
Joining DoubleClick as one of the first four people in International; Matt ran Northern Europe, Asia, Europe and then all of International during his six year tenure with the company which saw it grow from a handful of people to a 1,500 person, 23 office, $12bn behemoth.
He then undertook the turnaround to profitability and subsequent sale to FindWhat for $183 million of eSpotting, the last independent Pay-Per-Click network in Europe.
A recent focus on Web2.0, media and telephony has seen Matt as CEO for Lunarstorm and coComment, COO of Nivio in addition to advisory and non-executive director roles for several small businesses.
Matt is now the Director for New Businesses at Trinity Mirror plc where he is responsible for delivering on the group’s new strategy of innovation, exploration and growth in the digital space.
Matt was educated at Imperial College, London University and holds a degree in Computing Science. He is a keen sportsman, when time permits
