How to reinvent your mobile storytelling

Fifty-six per cent of UK news consumers get their news via smartphone. Although technology has changed the distribution of news dramatically, most stories are still told in the same way as they were 100 years ago. One of our workshops will teach you how to create mobile-friendly stories using creative visual formats, such as AMP stories, timelines, and more.

How to monetise content on smart speakers

Despite the rise in sales of voice-controlled devices, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, the difficulty of monetising content holds publishers back from innovating on voice platforms. We will explore the benefits of being an early adopter and investing
in audio content.

Where to look for new ways to finance digital journalism

From micropayments and crowdfunding to innovative membership models and crypto-currencies, we will look at successful strategies to finance online journalism.

Why blockchain is increasingly used in publishing

The technology known for generating Bitcoin can also help publishers solve important problems like disinformation, censorship, and lack of trust in the media. Join us to find out how.

Why big publishers need to care about small, local stories

Speakers from BBC, HuffPost UK and Reach will look at local journalism projects they carried out last year and will discuss why listening to regional audiences is vital
for their organisation’s success.
