11th Int. Newsroom Summit: Smart strategies, game changers and enemies of change

NextLevelofNews.com /Liquid Newsroom is media partner of the 11th annual Newsroom Summit, in Hamburg.

WAN IFRA ::  Paul Lewis, the Special Projects Editor at The Guardian in the United Kingdom, has been a role model for embracing the changing world around him. By harnessing the power of social media and crowdsourcing, he has produced some of the most compelling investigative journalism in recent years, such as his on-the-street reports of the riots in Britain last summer. “I think actually there are very few realms of reporting that don’t lend themselves to being much more open in the way that we produce and then subsequently report the news,” says Mr Lewis, who had 10,000 Twitter followers before the riots and today has 47,000.

As the total rethink of traditional newsroom roles, workflows and business models continues without end, an openness to all things new appears to be necessary for success. That philosophy will be on display when some of the newspaper industry’s smartest newsroom minds share their open-minded strategies at the 11th annual Newsroom Summit, to be held on 10 and 11 May in Hamburg, Germany.
