With only one month to go to news:rewired ‘in focus’, our half-day conference taking an in-depth look at social media newsgathering and verification, we’re delighted to announce more speakers who will be joining our expert line-up on 21 October.

Gavin Rees, the director of Dart Centre Europe, runs workshops and discussion groups on trauma awareness, resilience and interviewing skills for working journalists in a range of countries around the world. Gavin will be joining the ‘Wild West of social media’ panel alongside Aine Kerr, managing editor of Storyful, and Sam Dubberley, co-founder of the Eyewitness Media Hub.

And Mark Frankel, assistant editor, UGC and social news, at the BBC, will lead a practical workshop in the second half of the event, giving us an insight into the BBC’s social media newsgathering process.
