Bloomberg Live's New Global Chief Is Betting Big on Events

Stephen Colvin wants to take brand's conferences around the world

Adweek: You’ve been the CEO of media companies including the Robb Report, the Newsweek Daily Beast Company and Dennis Publishing. Why take a job focusing on live events? 
Stephen Colvin: Bloomberg is an amazing company. Great products, great people, and the chocolate almonds at our offices aren’t too bad either, by the way. But events have always been a pretty important thread with all the media companies that I’ve worked with, going back to way before I came to the U.S. when I was in the U.K. I’ve always been a huge believer in the role that events play as a very powerful, engaging media platform.
