Smart strategies for tough times
Most newsroom executives are under intense pressure to cut costs while at the same time being asked to do more than ever before with limited resources.
Waves of change brought about by digital advancements continue to challenge the way content and editorial staff are managed. The result is an innovative breed of newsroom managers who have had to become organizational experts, workflow designers, teachers, revenue seekers, change drivers, professional standards setters and motivators. And they are doing all this with smaller budgets and while overseeing increasing and novel interaction with readers via social networks.
Join us in Hamburg to meet some of these innovators who have developed Smart strategies for tough times that enable them to continue to produce high quality content. Learn from their experiences, contribute to the critical conversations and take home tips on how to keep your newsroom vibrant, effective and affordable.
