newsmeetIt has been terrific meeting with newsagents at the newsagency management workshops being run around the country at the moment.

Newsagents I am talking with are looking for¬†practical advice and ideas appropriate to their situation. They don’t want to be sold some froth and bubble, they want specific information on actions they can take in their own situation.

I am sensing a change in the newsagency channel. I have spoken at many events like these over the years and the mood of this series is different. It gives me optimism about the future of the newsagency channel.

It’s been particularly thrilling to meet with newsagents from rural and regional areas. Hearing of someone travelling for four hours to participate is fantastic.

    Mark ,I would just like to thank you and your team on a great workshop which I went to in Sydney. It gave me a lot of new idea,s and inspiration . But most of all it was great to see more newsagents stepping up and getting a new direction for their business.
