With less than two months to go until newsrewired on 7 March, we are delighted to announce Maaike Goslinga and Jessica Best of Dutch news organisation De Correspondent will be giving the keynote speech at our 21st digital journalism conference at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.

In the keynote, Maaike and Jessica will outline how De Correspondent has built a sustainable news organisation that restores trust in journalism, and that moves readers to become paying members and expert contributors of De Correspondent’s online community.

They will share 10 lessons De Correspondent has learned over the last four years, including the ways members contribute more than just their money; the key things they’ve found through their partnership with NYU’s Membership Puzzle Project; and the ongoing challenges they face in relation to both their Dutch platform, and as they look to launch an English-language platform in 2018.

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
