2020 has been a tough year for the media industry. The coronavirus pandemic has forced journalists to work from home, disrupted revenue streams and is causing staff burnout.
We could be here all day talking about the problems. But at the 27th Newsrewired conference starting on 1 December 2020, we aim to set you up for success in 2021.
Leading experts will share their knowledge around navigating the challenges of covid-19 and help you take advantage of the opportunities your newsroom has to innovate.
Want to know more? We caught up with a few of our speakers ahead of time, featuring:
- Dmitry Shiskin, independent digital consultant and former BBC World Service digital development editor.
- Kassy Cho, journalist and audience strategist.
- Ryan Tuck, independent consultant and adviser.
