On January 4, journalists will gather at the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism for Strictly Financials, a day of interactive sessions and networking. The free program will be invaluable to any reporter who wants to improve their business reporting.
The new workshop, offered on Jan. 4, 2018 at ASU’s Cronkite School in downtown Phoenix, home of the Reynolds Center, features Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters and top financial experts. The sessions are designed to give journalists the modern tools they need to improve their coverage of business and the economy.
Speakers at the Phoenix event include Bloomberg’s Tom Contiliano, who will share hands-on exercises on how to use accounting techniques to understand public filings. David Davick, the former head of investor relations at Gap Inc., will provide insider strategies for scrutinizing private businesses.
The workshop also includes Pulitzer Prize winner Sarah Cohen, the Cronkite School’s Knight Chair in Data Journalism, who will focus on using data science in investigative reporting.
A luncheon presentation will be delivered by Walter V. Robinson, the Donald W. Reynolds Visiting Professor at the Cronkite School. Robinson led the Boston Globe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning report on the Roman Catholic Church sexual abuse scandal, recounted in the Academy Award-winning film “Spotlight.”
Lunch will be served, and the day will conclude with a networking cocktail hour. Parking is free for registered participants.
