Jaime Ivan is an entrepreneur, expert speaker and consultant on new technologies, communication and marketing, applied to the publishing sector, with a holistic vision that combines in a particular way in areas such as the study of the development of the industry, the concepts, models and opportunities that supports it; the activities of digital endeavor and new possibilities that give it the potential in the middle of deployments and news of all kinds, that sometimes eventually overwhelm, and the methodological and management rigor for projects to work, land and be possible with perspective of sustainability, marketing and growth.
