More from this event →

From the rise of chat apps to the successful re-invigoration of newsletters with personality, it’s obvious audiences are hungry for new ways to connect with news and information. Learn how to build a unique conversation around the news and deal with the technological, ethical and editorial issues these new experiments raise. We’ll also look at audience research and personal stories that illustrate the methodology and impact of these new models.
