"I have been going to conferences for a multi national company for over 30 years , and this was the best ever."
"There were innovative conversations about how we can collectively better ourselves as community papers, rather than fighting each other until the bitter end. The format included different perspectives and allowed interesting ideas to come from places you didn't expect."
Participants conference evaluation
The newspaper industry is changing faster then ever before. The 2015 Newspapers Atlantic conference was an opportunity for community newspapers to re-connect to purpose and re-visit the work in community in midst of a tumultuous period of change.
Tim and the team ran the 2.5 day conference for the association. This included providing the keynotes, facilitating interactive plenary sessions and organizing participant lead breakout groups. The conference received the highest evaluation scores in its history.
