Katherine Griffiths – Bringing BuzzFeed from New York to Australia
In 2011, Katherine Griffiths was the 19th person to join Buzzfeed, a New York-based news and entertainment website. Five years on, Buzzfeed has achieved explosive global growth, attracting over 200 million visitors to its website every month, and building a worldwide team of over 1,300 staff.
Last year, Katherine moved to Sydney as a founding team member for Buzzfeed Australia. This will be a rare opportunity to get an international front line perspective on one of the most successful online businesses today.
There will be great insights from Katherine on:
- Growing internationally in the Australian and US markets.
