The EACD is happy to invite you to our first EACD meets the Media event, which will take place on June 2nd 2015 from 9:00 to 11:00 at Thomson Reuters in Madrid.

The aim of these events is to give members a unique insight and to discuss thoughts on communication as well as the cooperation of communication professionals and media representatives/journalists.
In that sense, the event  provides a platform to exchange thoughts and gain valuable insights into the communications landscape from the media perspective – including a tour through the office of Thomson Reuters in Madrid.

We are happy to introduce our speakers at Thomson Reuters:
Julien Toyer is Reuters Bureau Chief in Madrid. He joined Reuters nine years ago in Paris where he covered general news and later telecoms. He moved to Brussels in 2008 where he reported on everything from foreign policy to trade, agriculture, competition and the euro zone debt crisis. Travelling across the continent, he secured many scoops including on Greece’s first international aid package or the European oil embargo to Iran. In March 2012, Julien moved to Madrid. In addition to helping lead the Spain bureau and driving the corporate coverage as deputy chief correspondent, Julien has scored major exclusives such as on Spain requesting a banking bailout or on Telefonica’s efforts to restructure its business. He was appointed Bureau Chief in July 2014.
Carlos Ruano is Reuters Spanish News Editor in Madrid. For close to a decade he has been leading a team of about 15 journalists who have set the agenda on corporate and economic news in Spain, dominating major stories such as Repsol’s exit from Argentina, Bankia’s recapitalization,  Spain’s effort to avoid a sovereign bailout and restructure its economy or more recently Aena’s listing and FCC’s debt restructuring. Over his 23 years at Reuters, Carlos has covered everything from fixed income to construction, banks or energy. He previously worked for Cinco Dias, Diario 16, Cadena Ser and RNE among many other news outlets.
