With only a few weeks to go until the next newsrewired digital journalism conference, taking place on 7 March at Reuters in London, the Journalism.co.uk team is pleased to announce two more speakers joining us on the day.
Experts from CNN and Reuters will join other key figures in digital media to discuss the latest trends and techniques in journalism and storytelling, offering practical insights and tips to delegates.
Eliza Mackintosh is a London-based digital producer covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa for CNN International. She is also the project coordinator for As Equals, a CNN series funded by the European Journalism Centre, which looks at the challenges women face in the world’s least developed countries.
Mackintosh joined CNNI in 2016 from Storyful, where she worked as a digital journalist and managed strategic news partnerships as part of the company’s UK expansion. She has also reported for the Washington Post as a special correspondent in London.
Eliza will join Kristin Granbo of NRK and Marc Settle of BBC Academy in a session looking at mobile-first journalism, sharing insights into formats and considerations for producing content designed with a mobile audience in mind.
Tessa Kaday is a senior product manager for video at Reuters, the world’s leading news agency, where she specialises in delivering live video to hundreds of broadcasters and digital publishers across the globe. She spent 15 years in Reuters newsrooms as a field producer, reporter and desk editor – eventually overseeing the agency’s global live video coverage as its head of live desk.
Since joining the product team in 2017, she helped launch the company’s latest, cutting-edge live video service, Reuters Live. At newsrewired, Tessa will join Peter Stewart on the opening panel discussing live video online, from best practices for livestreaming to workflows and trends.
A focus on practical, hands-on learning has always been at the heart of newsrewired, and Journalism.co.uk will be hosting a full day of training after the main conference in March.
Delegates can register to attend the conference (7 March) and one of the full-day courses during the training day (8 March) by purchasing a newsrewired+ ticket.
Newsrewired+ tickets cost £368+VAT. They represent a 10 per cent discount compared to booking tickets for both days separately. Please note the training day on 8 March takes place at The Bridge, 81 Southwark Bridge Road, London SE1 0NQ.
Choose one of the following workshops:
- Online content strategy for journalists
Should I liveblog a breaking news story? Or do a Facebook Live? Or would a traditional news story be the best path? How should I follow it up? What will reach my audience, and what will get me the best traffic? How do you choose how to spend your precious time or staff resources on the right kinds of coverage for your audience?
This one-day intensive course is designed to help you navigate those questions, and make great decisions on how to use the right style of coverage for the right story. Led by Adam Tinworth, a digital journalism expert for over a decade, and a visiting lecturer at City, University of London, this course will bring you up to speed with the cutting edge of thinking about online content, with plenty of real-world examples and exercises derived from his work with organisations in the UK and overseas.
- Storytelling with infographics
This course will help you to think creatively about visualising your story and data in the most effective way for your audience across printed and online media. This one-day workshop, led by Nigel Hawtin, who worked as graphics editor at New Scientist for 20 years, is aimed at journalists, writers, PRs and communications teams who are looking to incorporate infographics into their storytelling.
At the end of this course you will: be equipped with the background knowledge and skills needed to produce or commission an effective infographic; understand the role of infographics and data visualisations for storytelling; understand how to translate complex issues into appropriate visual forms; avoid common mistakes; and be able to look at other infographics critically.
