We are pleased to announce that George Brock, a journalist, consultant, and visiting professor at City, University of London, will be joining the panel that will zoom in on different revenue options. Speakers will also shed light on what kind of revenue is best suited for what newsroom, inspiring the delegates to explore new ways to make their work sustainable.

The session will be led by Charlie Beckett, a professor in the Department of Media and Communications and founding director of Polis, the London School of Economics’ international journalism think-tank.
