SAN FERNANDO VALLEY MIXER
W/ LECTURER DEREK ALDERTON ('93):
ENTERTAINMENT & TECHNOLOGY -
LIVING IN INTERESTING TIMES
Join fellow UCLA Anderson alumni for an evening of networking, and a relevant presentation on Entertainment and Technology - Living in Interesting Times, with Derek Alderton ('93), Managing Partner Alderton Business Services and Former Co-Head, McKinsey Consulting West Coast Group.
The world of high tech and entertainment have a constantly evolving relationship. Platforms are converging, content formats diverging, and consumption is fragmenting. Diminishing returns force us to reevaluate common practices. How does advertising, DVD sales, user generated content & content networking play a role in the new world of entertainment?
We will enjoy a few hours of light food, drinks and networking and welcome the newest members of our alumni community here in the San Fernando Valley!
A no-host bar is available adjacent to the meeting room. Please bring your parking ticket for validation with you to the event ($5 w/ validation).
