Newsrewired has always been focused on practical learning and knowledge-sharing. Our next conference takes place on 7 March at Reuters in Canary Wharf, and as usual, we are following that with a full day of training. On 8 March at our training venue at The Bridge (near London Bridge), newsrewired+ delegates can choose to attend one of two full day workshops to further develop practical digital journalism skills.

A newsrewired+ ticket gives you access to both the conference on 7 March and one of the workshops on 8 March. Training options will be announced shortly, and you can now register for a discounted early-bird ticket to attend the two days of the event.

Early-bird newsrewired+ tickets are currently available for £323+VAT until 12 January, after which they will cost £368+VAT. They represent a 10 per cent discount compared to booking tickets for both days separately

From CNBC (US) to La Nación (Argentina), data visualisation is used to explain complex stories by showing the numbers in an intelligible way. At newsrewired, Tableau’s Jade Le Van led a step-by-step workshop helping a group of delegates get started with Tableau Public. The software is free and can be downloaded here.

For those of you who couldn’t make it to the session, Jade shared some resources you can use to learn at home, as well as communities you can turn to for inspiration or support if you get stuck.

Her skills range from finding and cleaning data to effective data storytelling.

New on the agenda: Connected news, from devices to communities

Could we make local news more relevant by using beacon technology to send silent alerts to people’s phones as they walk around town, without having an app involved? And could connected devices rebuild the link between journalism and community? Would context-aware news that suits a person’s needs based on their movements or behaviour in relation to their mobile devices at any given time provide a better flow of information throughout the day?

In a session powered by Google’s Digital News Initiative at newsrewired on 22 November, we will explore journalism projects using beacon technology and the “IoT” (Internet of Things) to develop a better news experience for readers.

We have now sold out of single day passes to newsrewired, but we still have a few 2-day tickets left, including access to the conference on 22 November and one training course of your choice on 23 November.

This will be our 20th conference, and as usual, we’re aiming to provide delegates with practical skills and ideas they can take home and explore in their own organisations.

“Most successful organisations fail to look for new things their customers want because they’re afraid to hurt their core businesses,” Reed Hastings, chief executive of Netflix, once said.

Disrupting your business may be the only way to ward off the threat of extinction. As a seasoned pioneer and trusted partner, Reuters has followed their clients’ journeys of transformation, reallocating resources from old models to the new, and developing new economic engines. In a spotlight talk at newsrewired on 22 November, Nick Cohen, director of video products at Reuters, will present the popular ways the organisation has seen them experiment to meet emerging realities.

Prior to joining Reuters, Nick built up nearly 20 years of experience in the news and entertainment industries as an award-winning digital producer, commissioner and product development specialist.

The next newsrewired takes place on 22 November 2017 at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London, followed by a day of hands-on training on 23 November. Tickets are selling out fast. We currently have only 4 tickets left for the conference on 22 November, and 12 for both 22 and 23 November.
