Infusing Inspiration in Publishing - Shannon Cullen, Group Publishing Director at Quarto Kids

The BookMachine Podcast: Conversations in Publishing

Dec 13 2023 • 36 mins

Managing teams across generations and departments can call for a variety of approaches and working styles, which is why hearing from experts on the topic is key. We were delighted to speak with Shannon Cullen, Group Publishing Director of Quarto Kids, about her career and journey to her role where she is now. We ask about her experience moving from Editorial Manager all the way up to Publishing Director at Penguin Random House UK, and how her leadership or management style has changed over the years and with the teams she’s worked with.  We also talk about Shannon and Gemma's John Green era during their time working on The Fault in our Stars and other iconic titles, and the importance of taking all of your holidays.
