What Publishing Can Learn From Industry

Jun 13, 2021

Episode 127 of bookcareers.com Live

In this episode of bookcareers Live we have a very special guest, Neil Morrison, former Group HR Director of Penguin Random House, and current HR Director of Severn Trent Water.

It has been 4 years since Neil left book publishing and we thought we’d ask him some questions about what publishing could learn from other industries. So if you want to know what publishing is doing well, what it should be doing better and how the industry can move on, don’t miss this episode.

This is also the start of our conversation on The Future of Work on the bookcareers Live Forum. We’d like to hear from you! What is publishing doing well?  What is it are doing badly? Do you have any suggestions as how publishing can improve?  Please let us know what you think! You can register on the forum with an anonymous username which isn’t tied to any of your social profiles.

Don’t forget too, the questionnaire for our bookcareers.com Salary survey is currently live at https://www.bookcareers.com/salary-survey/. If you work in UK book and journal publishing or for a literary agency in a salaried role, this survey is for you! You have until 23:00 on Friday, 30th July 2021.

You can talk about any of the issues mentioned in this podcast on our bookcareers.com/live platform. Or why not discuss this episode across social media using the hashtag #bookcareers?
