News:rewired has always been about highlighting new skills and practical tips our delegates can take back to their teams and use in their day-to-day work. We are pleased to announce a training day will follow our conference in July, giving attendees the chance to gain more in-depth knowledge about one of three topics we will cover: making podcasts and audio packages; search engine optimisation; and advanced online research techniques.

A news:rewired+ ticket to access both the conference on 20 July and one of the courses on the 21 July costs just £402 – it gives you an 18 per cent discount on the conference compared to booking tickets separately.

Once you’ve purchased a news:rewired+ ticket, a member of our team will be in touch to see which course you would like to book.

Please note that spaces are intentionally limited to allow each delegate to get the most from the course, so book early to avoid disappointment.
