This may well be the last media conference of 2020. But rather than talking about everything that went wrong with the media industry this year, we want to set you up for success in 2021.

 
In a short space of time, media organisations have had to adapt to new ways of sourcing stories, engaging their audiences and tweaking their revenue models, all while working from home and often with reduced teams.
 
 
On the flip side, this disruption allows us to rethink our mission, processes and goals. People expect things to be different so now is the best time to implement long-overdue changes in your newsrooms.
 
 
But how do you lead the change? Join our second virtual conference and hear from our top speakers every Tuesday and Thursday between 1 and 10 December 2020. Early-bird tickets are now available – book yours before 6 November 2020 and save £50.
