What former Young Talent winners say
“Digitalisation has reduced the distance between readers and publishers. Social media offers an opportunity to engage in dialogue. We are moving towards a personal, reciprocal approach to reading across different platforms. And one thing is certain: that is nothing to be afraid of.”
"As a digital native I think, that the book industry must find new ways to expand its book worlds. There are endless opportunities to do that - also specially in the digital segment. And I want to get involved in this process.“
We support young professionals and high potentials in many ways
