Conversations is a series of events focused on open discussions on the changing new media landscape. Our events will feature panels with insights from the most respected news organizations, the newest disruptive publishers, and tech and media thought leaders. Through conversations, let’s work to transform media together.

As data is becoming increasingly available, how are media companies digesting and presenting data to best communicate and illustrate their stories and products? How do journalists know when data is reliable? How is data impacting the way news is presented and reported? How is data driving business decisions within an organization? For our November event, "How Data is Changing Media Companies," our panelists will discuss and debate their thoughts on what lies ahead for them and for the industry as a whole.
