Poynter Leadership Academy (MACAD-14)
Here’s a fact: Each October, managers in newsrooms all over the world come to Poynter to learn how to be better leaders. Why?
“I consider my time at Poynter to have been a week-long detox, of sorts, that helped me recognize my best work habits and objectively look at what I want to do better, smarter or simply in a more purposeful way. To have been given the opportunity to DO all this in the company of my peers from all over the world, in sessions taught by a dazzling lineup of faculty mentors, is one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had as a journalist.”
Shawna VanNess, Newsday
