The Advertising Club of Toronto will host their annual Magazine Day event on Friday, December 1, 2017 at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Toronto. Back by popular demand, this year’s keynote speaker is Jane Francisco, the Editor-in-Chief of Good Housekeeping and Editorial Director of the Hearts Lifestyle Group. She will share her experience leading a venerable brand through a massive transformation in a fireside chat with Jacqueline Loch, VP and Group Publisher of St. Joseph Media.
Magazines Canada is proud to co-present Jane Francisco’s keynote with St. Joseph Media. In addition to her well-received talk at last year’s Magazine Day, Jane was also the MagNet Marquee speaker at our 2017 national magazine conference.
Jane Francisco joined Hearst as Editor-in-Chief of Good Housekeeping in November 2013. In November 2016, Jane was also named Editorial Director of the Hearst Lifestyle Group, which includes Good Housekeeping, Redbook, Woman’s Day and Dr. Oz The Good Life. Under her leadership, Good Housekeeping was named to Adweek’s Hot List as the Hottest Women’s Magazine in 2016 and one of Advertising Age’s Hottest Magazines of the Year for 2016. Good Housekeeping now inspires a cross-platform audience of over 30 million women. Previously, Francisco was Editor-in-Chief of Chatelaine.
