  • Symposium: Christian Radio – Winning in the New World through Content Differentiation - REGISTRATION OPENS

    An interactive symposium looking specifically at how Christian Radio can win in the new world through content differentiation. Experts from the US, UK and Australia will report on how the future is already affecting their worlds. We will also hear from an innovation expert and a leader in the business community about the impact of digital technologies on business models.

    Radio will face unprecedented changes over the coming decade. New digital technologies will mean that the advantages of owning a broadcasting license will significantly erode. “Having a spot on the dial” will mean a lot less in ten years time, as new challengers compete for people’s listening time through the internet and the plethora of mobile technologies it supports.

    Morning – The New Future for Radio – Global Perspectives
    Experts from the US, UK and Australia will report on how the future is already affecting their worlds. We will also hear from an innovation expert and a leader in the business community about the impact of digital technologies on business models.

    Afternoon – How your station can compete and win in this new world of “attention scarcity”.
    How can your station compete, win, and even thrive in this new world? This is an interactive session looking at a strategy for “winning through content differentiation”.

    Over the next decade having a broadcast license will mean a lot less than it does today. The issue for audio content developers will no longer be “spectrum scarcity” (space on the dial) – it will be “attention scarcity” (space in the ears). The volume of content that the internet and mobile devices provide will mean that the competition for people’s ears will increase exponentially. In this new world, the way to win is through consistent quality content. We will discuss new practical ways for your station to develop and release great content, all the time.

  • The 2017 Faith & Belief Research Launch

    This is an open to the public session where the 2017 Faith and Belief Research findings will be presented by McCrindle Research.

     In 2011 Olive Tree Media commissioned McCrindle Research to explore Christianity and belief blockers in Australia society, resulting the research piece in The Australian Communities Report. The research provided strategic insights into what Australians believe about Jesus and also explored public perceptions towards the Church. 

    Since the research was conducted, a large number Christian ministers, pastors, denominational leaders, theological training organisations, para church organisations and Christian not for profit organisations have used the research to inform and guide their evangelistic and mission-based activities. 

    The 2017 study will provide an update on the findings that matter for how the Church can engage effectively with society and culture.
