FEI ForwardThinking Q4 Series: The Rise of the Streaming Culture and The Art of the COVID Pivot

FEI FORWARDTHINKING Q4 SERIES:
WHY MEDIA FINANCE MATTERS MORE THAN EVER

For finance leaders in the media, news and entertainment industries, digital transformation has altered traditional business models. Disruptions in politics, public policy, and consumer habits along with ever-changing digital platforms, have forced many to pivot. Media financial executives are tasked with trying to survive in an industry beset with risks, and also making their organizations financially viable for years to come.

Government mandated stay-at-home orders significantly contributed to the growth of the streaming culture. The quarantine mandates also resulted in a mass shutdown of content productions. For media and entertainment companies that rely on production revenues, the impact was grave. Join us as we speak with Viacom EVP, Controller and CAO Katherine Gill-Charest about their transfer of non-core assets to support the growth of streaming, and how they deal with production halts.

Join the Financial Education and Research Foundation (FERF), in cooperation with Robert Half | Protiviti, for the Q4 sessions of a year-long series featuring live, in-depth Q&A discussions with three media and entertainment leaders that will offer insight on how they have managed their organizations through these unprecedented times.
