YPC’s roster of industry thought leaders and innovators include Michael Clinton, President, Marketing and Publishing Director, Hearst Magazines, Cindi Leive, Editor-in-Chief, GlamourKim Kelleher, Publisher, Chief Revenue Officer, WIRED and Ars Technica, and Michela O'Connor Abrams, President and CEO, Dwell Media, to name a few.

YPC speakers have been selected for their expertise, teaching skills and dedication to innovation, and represent both large and small organizations. YPC’s Director, Tina Weiner, said, “YPC’s cutting edge curriculum recognizes how much publishing has evolved into a multi-platform industry, and focuses its attention on helping participants improve their management techniques, maximize the potential of ever-changing technology, and build new revenue streams to advance their print and digital endeavors. YPC allows them to step away from their own particular silos and view the industry from a wider, international perspective.”

During the immersive 5 days on the Yale University campus, participants will engage directly with speakers and a diverse group of peers, both inside the classroom and in small discussion groups, meals, breaks, and receptions. 

Past participants have said that YPC was an inspiring and energizing education. Michelle Herrera Mulligan, Director of Special Projects at Hearst Digital Media and 2015 YPC alum, said, “YPC is an extraordinary opportunity to learn from, and converse with, the best minds in publishing today. Chatting over lunch and marveling over the detailed presentations, I feel like I’ve met my dream-team board of advisors.”
