    Seminar

    Americans’ trust and confidence in the media is at an all-time low. Meanwhile, journalists’ need to build relationships and loyalty with the audience is more important than ever. How do you connect the two? In an intensive one-day, hands-on workshop, we’ll dive into case studies and best practices, identify lessons and create unique audience engagement approaches for your news organization. By focusing on three topic areas — transparency, listening and outreach — we’ll explore how to build trust and engagement with audiences in today’s political landscape.
