Experience Matters: Veteran Journalists on the Way Forward
This is a unique chance to learn just how much journalism is changing from a group of decorated journalists who are living that change. Between them, our crack team of panellists have decades of experience in the industry. They will discuss how journalism now differs from when they were starting out and what they have learned over the course of their careers.
This is more than an extended recap of old glories through rose-coloured glasses. Our panellists are still involved in the media industry, and a key focus will be discussing where journalism is heading – and what they wish they knew about the new media world.
Hosted by Andrew Dodd with Jim Middleton, Ramona Koval and Ross Gittins.
This event is also available as part of the Friday Day Pass.
