Looking for awesome multimedia training?

…then look no further!

If you’re in the UK in April and looking to skill up on your video shooting, editing and radio skills then the Journalism Weekender will be perfect for you.

News agency Feature Story News have team up with Newsleader Consultancy to offer an awesome weekend of hands on training on professional camera and audio skills. And I’m happy to announce I’ve jumped on board to help out over the course of the weekend as well.

According to the site, you’ll get a lot out of it:

…sessions on writing and presenting as well as the skills of multi-media working, including using social media; Practical assignments in either TV or radio; One to one coaching including CV building; Final session on marketing yourself to the media market.

Tickets are on a 20% discount ’til end of play Friday so if you’re thinking about it, think quick!

More training

On top of this, I’ve also been invited to join the KM Group of newspapers & radio stations in Kent later this month to share advice on multimedia, video journalism and making the most out of social media.

If you’re interested in finding out more, drop me a line!

Reinventing Radio News

Posted in Journalism by Adam Westbrook on September 28, 2009

Any presentation with the words “reinventing” and “radio” in its title is a winner in my book. If there’s a medium out there that needs a shot of the good stuff its radio (in the UK at least).

If you agree, Justin King’s talk at the RadioDays conference in Oslo and Copenhagen last week is worth a read. It’s called Reinventing the Radio News Team and Justin (who runs the Newsleader Media Consultancy) has put the notes up online.

I appear in it briefly (in video form) as do the far smarter Olly Barratt at FSN and Greg Burke at Jack FM.
