In his keynote speech at news:rewired, Shepherd will address how news outlets can strengthen their efforts in making the content they produce more shareable.

This is Journalism.co.uk’s eleventh news:rewired conference, and is expected to be another sell out. Tickets are still available for £130 +VAT.
