Content + Coffee: Storytelling Lessons from One of the World’s Top Brands

The September debut of "Upstanders" marked Starbucks’ first foray into producing original content – 10 stories about people creating positive change in their communities, in text, video and podcast forms. It’s “journalism in the public interest,” says Rajiv Chandrasekaran, a former senior editor of The Washington Post who leads this effort along with chairman and CEO Howard Schultz, noting that these kinds of stories are often overlooked by traditional media. Before joining Starbucks in 2015, Chandrasekaran spent two decades reporting from more than three dozen countries and was bureau chief in Baghdad, Cairo and Southeast Asia.

Lunch Session: When a Businessman Becomes President: Covering Trump

The sprawling business ties of President Trump and resulting potential conflicts of interests, not to mention the stream of new economic policies and programs, blur the intersection of politics and business news in ways rarely seen. While we scramble to make sense of it all, the administration calls journalists the real opposition party, putting us at risk of attacking back in ways that backfire or constantly playing defense. Our skills with data and economic thinking help ground us, yet we still need to recognize the ways in which our newsroom culture (and even ideology) shape our work. How do we hold our subjects accountable while remaining above the fray? How do we ensure our work serves audiences across the political and economic spectrum?

These questions are the subject of the 2017 Klott Memorial Ethics Symposium. Our moderator is Timothy L. O’Brien, executive editor of Bloomberg View and Bloomberg Gadfly. O’Brien, a former editor and reporter with the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and HuffPost, is the author of TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald. O’Brien will be joined by NPR Senior Business Editor Marilyn Geewax, who leads NPR’s Conflicts Team monitoring President Trump’s business interests, and Lawrence Ingrassia, managing editor, Los Angeles Times.

Klott Ethics Session: This session is offered in memory of former SABEW president Gary Klott, who died in August 2002. Gary spent considerable time educating members on ethical decision-making for journalists. The Klott ethics session is produced annually in his honor.

Personal Finance for the Uber Generation

Millennials are the most educated generation in history, yet – deep in debt and mistrustful of financial markets – need significant help navigating their financial lives. Reaching this mobile-native audience successfully will be critical to business news outlets’ own performance.

One startup publisher that’s going big is Mic, with its launch of the Payoff, a vertical dedicated to personal finance for young people. Susie Poppick, Mic's senior money editor, talks about the Payoff and creating engaging content for those facing life’s first big financial questions. The Payoff’s multi-format strategy — podcasts, interactive online products and a newsletter — offers insights for all of us seeking to reach this massive audience.

After a conversation with Poppick, we’ll hear from Brianna McGurran, a personal finance columnist at NerdWallet, on coverage strategies for millennials and their money — the topics and storytelling approaches that resonate most.

Speakers: Susie Poppick, senior money editor, Mic and Brianna McGurran, personal finance columnist, NerdWallet.

The Magic of Millennials

Managing millennials has been the collective struggle in legacy newsrooms across the country for half a dozen years. And maybe that’s the problem. Perhaps “managing” them employs the wrong verb. What if more seasoned leaders instead worked to embrace and learn from the younger people in their newsrooms? That’s the point of Kristen Fife, a senior technical recruiter who's worked for Microsoft, HP/Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Comcast, RealNetworks and, now, Zulily. Fife will be joined by Olivia Barrow, a LinkedIn Top Voice and millennial who quit her job, started a freelance career and is finally living a work life that fulfills her will.  Together they will host a robust discussion about helping millennials and their managers see the value in each other’s expertise and communicate more effectively as they pursue the common goal: A workplace where everyone is valued for the talent they bring to the table.

Virtual Reality/360 in Your Business Reporting

This session on “thinking in the sphere” will cover the basics of using 360-degree video in business coverage to create virtual reality. Shooting 360-degree video is not like shooting regular video – it requires a totally different way of looking at your surroundings, both before and during shooting. The session will begin with a review of the latest reasonably priced 360-degree cameras, software and equipment. After a discussion on shooting techniques, session attendees will leave the meeting room to shoot a short 360-degree visualization using their cell phones and a free app. This exercise will be followed with a review of some of the resulting visualizations, with pointers on how to make them more engaging and informative for website viewers.

Session sponsored by Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism.

Investigative Tips from Best in Business Honorees

BIB How They Did It: Locked On the Psych Ward, BuzzFeed News
BuzzFeed News reporter Rosalind Adams’ year-long investigation into how Universal Health Systems, the nation’s largest chain of psychiatric hospitals, locks patients up for money won a Best in Business for Investigative reporting (large category). Come chat with Adams about how she did it - more than 300 interviews, a stash of internal documents and sophisticated data analysis helped create this fascinating tale, which drew the attention of senators and knocked $2.4 billion off the company’s market value in a week.

BIB How They Did It: The Rent Racket, ProPublica and The Real Deal
This collaboration between ProPublica and The Real Deal produced a powerful series that documented how New York landlords and developers were enjoying massive tax breaks in return for agreeing to limit rent hikes, only to break their promises, which city and state officials didn’t enforce. ProPublica also published a wealth of data to inform New York tenants of their legal rights, including a news application that lets them input their address to learn if their apartment may be rent-stabilized. Hear from lead reporter Cezary Podkul about the challenges of pursuing this project.
