Picture1Katharine Weymouth recently addresses the ACG membership and other guests at the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference.

Katharine – a member of the family that has owned and operated The Washington Post for much of its storied history – remains at the publication as Publisher in the wake of its acquisition by the Founder and CEO of Amazon.com, Jeff Bezos.

As a veteran of the media and news industry, Katharine spoke to the membership about the shifting media landscape and leading an organization through change – two topics she was uniquely qualified to address.

The Corporate Growth, Capital Style editorial team was able to capture Katherine’s speech. In this first video, Katharine addresses the challenges facing the Washington Post today, and shares an interesting anecdote about why Bob Woodward wakes up every morning:

We’ll be featuring the rest of Katharine’s speech – as she segues from the state of the Washington Post and journalism to the business of running the publication- in our next post. We’ll also feature videos from Len Forkas, Ted Leonsis and the exciting panel discussions from the Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
