3 Global Media Personalities, 1 City

Three publications, three individuals and three different angles – journalism is key to challenging, inspiring and creating new ideas globally. The Summit in November brings the most creative media minds together under one roof, to share in the action and narrate the event to a global audience. The 3 below have taken very different routes to get to Dublin, editing and corresponding for different publications before arriving with The New York Times, Informilo and The Irish TImes respectively.

Mark Scott – New York Times

London-based European Tech Correspondent for the New York Times, Mark Scott, is yet another high profile journalist that will be coming to The Summit this November. With previous experience as a correspondent for Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Scott has a wide brief encompassing the whole continent, taking a special interest in the business side of technology firms in Europe.

Scott contributes consistently to Bits and DealBook on the New York Times blogs network. Bits focuses on breaking down the business side of the technology sector in Europe, while DealBook is a collation of the worldwide financial news that reports on company mergers and acquisitions.
