A lot to learn in Singapore during Publish Asia masterclasses

Comment   Email   Print

They're calling it masterclass mania, but it seems you'd have to be crazy to miss a deep dive at this year's Publish Asia event.

Among the brains to share are media innovator and consultant Juan Señor, expanding on 11 sustainable business models for publishers, safety consultant and ICRC communications strategist Pawel Krzysiek, forensic trainer Jacqueline Rodríguez González, and Fergus Bell, an expert on digital newsgathering and the verification of user-generated content. Participants in Señor's masterclass will also visit two Singapore-based newsrooms.

Pawel is responsible for the International Committee of the Red Cross Asia-Pacific's media and public outreach strategy and handled the ICRC's communications in Syria.

Jacqueline Rodríguez González has extensive experience in the areas of forensics, investigation of missing persons, and has participated in the management of mass disasters and crime scenes involving violations of human rights and international humanitarian law. She has provided training to first responders on search and recovery of dead bodies in different contexts.

An experienced digital journalist, Fergus Bell is a prominent advocate for higher industry standards in the ethical use of UGC and social media.

Complimentary admission is also being offered to a masterclass called 'Science in News: Keeping the Facts Straight' to eligible participants. The focus is on identifying the challenges around science and health journalism and developing workflows for fast, accurate and engaging reporting. Successful applicants also receive free admission to the Publish Asia/Newsroom Summit Asia conference.

Conference and masterclass details are here.
