On Monday 2 October, the British Library will host 'Hot off the Press' a super-charged panel discussion. This event will bring together four trail-blazing and controversial entrepreneurial editors who will debate how best to start and develop a business in the media.

The event is the latest in a series of events and workshops designed to inspire and support entrepreneurs and small businesses as part of the Library's recently upgraded Business and IP Centre.

This highly entertaining panel comprises:

Steve Auckland - the managing director of the free London newspaper, Metro.

James Brown (right) - the founding editor of Loaded and Jack magazines; and the founder of magazine company, IFG.

Lopa Patel - the award-winning founder of Redhotcurry.com, the leading lifestyle portal for British Asians.

William Ong - the founder of Chinatown, the business and lifestyle magazine for the Chinese in the UK, China and Asia-Pacific.

The 'Hot off the Press' discussion panel runs from 6.30pm to 8.00pm on Monday 2 October 2006 at The British Library Conference Centre and is followed by a drinks reception until 9.00pm.
