As we get closer to the next newsrewired event, which takes place on 22 November at Reuters in London, Journalism.co.uk is pleased to announce two more sessions from the agenda and additional speakers joining us on the day.

The event next month will be our 20th newsrewired, and, as always, we will be focusing on practical learning through a mix of panels, workshops and spotlight talks.

It’s all out in the open: Open-source tools for journalists and how to use them

There are many free resources and open-source tools for journalists out there, made by other journalists, news organisations, civic groups and others. They are ready to be used in your newsroom, and tailored to your own needs, but how many of them do you even know about?

In this practical workshop, Leila Haddou, data journalist at The Times and Sunday Times, and co-organiser of the Journocoders meetup, will outline 15+ open-source tools you can use in your reporting, from investigative resources, data analysis and visualisation to digital storytelling and sharing. She will also show examples of real life journalism projects using these tools and suggest ways they might be used in future.

Leila has an avid interest in the use of technology for data-led investigations. She previously worked for the Financial Times investigations team exposing corporate fiddles to dump pensions and in-depth business profiles of political heavyweights including Philip Hammond.

Spotlight talk: A look at Monocle’s strategy, 10 years on

Since it was founded in 2007, Monocle has aimed to make strategic decisions about where and when to invest in new products and initiatives, both editorially and commercially. It has added a 24-hour radio station, podcasts and events to the production of its flagship magazine.

In this short talk, Andrew Tuck, editor of Monocle, will provide a look at the organisation’s print and digital strategy, and will explain how these initiatives are ultimately geared towards engaging and expanding the audience of the print magazine, which counts more than 81,000 audited sales every issue.

Andrew is the founding editor of Monocle and the host of The Urbanist, the Monocle 24 radio show dedicated to making better cities. He is also editor of The Monocle Book Collection, including The Monocle Guide to Better Living, and the ever-expanding Travel Guide Series. Prior to joining Monocle, Andrew was the executive editor of the Independent on Sunday newspaper in the UK and also ran their Sunday and Saturday magazines.
