FREITAG am Donnerstag

I am happy to announce «FREITAG am Donnerstag» (Friday on Thursday), a mini lecture series I am curating and partially moderating for FREITAG, to celebrate their new REFERENCE collection.

Three renowned international speakers are going to share their thoughts on the topic of journalism and media. The «FREITAG am Donnerstag» talk series will take place at the FREITAG REFERENCE editorial space in Zurich that the bros. have set up for the month of September. (read more here)

Space is extremely limited (50 spots max). 25 spots will go to a carefully selected group of people but 25 slots will each time be available for swissmiss readers. Maybe you? (No worries, for those of you who can’t make it either because you are too far away or you didn’t get a slot, we will tape the talks and then share here on swissmiss.)

Khoi Vinh, former Design Director
September 9th, 8.30am – 10am
Moderated by swissmiss.

David Rowan, Editor WIRED Magazine UK
September 17th, 8.30am – 10am
Moderated by the FREITAG bros.
(We realize that the series is called Friday on Thursday but this event is happening on a friday. Consider this one talk ‘Friday on Friday’)

Peter Hossli, Reporter SonntagsBlick Magazine
September 23rd, 8.30am – 1oam
Moderated by the FREITAG bros.

  4. Indeed, I love that press.

  5. Have a design of he paginates attractive web and professional is by himself the first step to manage to attract his customers’ attention. The second step is to manage his potential customers to find his page. At present, the searching engines are the first place to where the people in search of information about services or products in line attend; this means that, if his page is not shown in the results of the most popular searching engines (Google, Yahoo, Live MSN,) you will be losing an important source of potential customers then.

  6. I do agree with all the concepts you have presented to your post.

    They are very convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for beginners.
    May you please prolong them a bit from next time?
    Thanks for the post.
