Leading Through Change in Australia

Post on November 18, 2020 by PubMatic


The coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on the media and advertising industries. There can be no denying that 2020 has been a tough year, but it has been one that has also presented new opportunities and accelerated positive shifts that were already in play. 

As PubMatic, our partners, and customers have navigated through the continuing changes in the marketplace, we launched a project to highlight advice and guidance from industry leaders. Times of uncertainty call for strong leadership, and this is something our partners have in great measure. 

As part of our global “Leading Through Change” initiative, we partnered with B&T to produce a series of short video interviews with our publisher and buy-side customers. We asked them to talk about how they’ve led through the changes they’ve seen this year, and what best practices they’re putting in place to lead their organizations to continued success in the days to come.  

Check out these videos from Publicis, The Trade Desk, Network 10, News Corp, and PubMatic – and see for yourself why there is a lot to be excited about in ad tech.
