Rouven Leuener is group head of digital product at Neue Zürcher Zeitung, one of the oldest German-language newspapers. He took the lead on digital innovation five years ago and, during this time, he launched digital products that attracted new online subscribers and turned the newspaper around.

Among NZZ’s latest innovations is a text-to-speech audio player feature that converts written articles into audio. The publisher is now looking at new ways to monetise this audio content and grow its subscribers base.

Jess Brammar, head of news at HuffPost UK, will be joining the panel ‘Local news: Breaking out of the London bubble.’

Matthew Barraclough is a head of Local News Partnerships at BBC. He has been a journalist since 1995, working mainly in the North East of England in a number of roles including reporter, programme producer and eventually Editor of BBC Tees, the local radio station in Middlesbrough.

Nic Newman is a senior research associate at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism and has recently led a research into the future of voice and the implication for news.
