#MOJO: Can Mobile Video and Design Thinking save your newsroom?

This post is for the people who have been asking for slides after my recent lectures on this topic in Italy, Cairo, Chicago, Paris, Vienna, Warsaw, and Zagreb.

Here you go: I am posting these handout slides from my keynote presentation: A Revolution in Storytelling - Can Mobile Video and Design Thinking can save your newsroom? 

TIP: Join me at the Lviv Media Forum in May for the next presentation.

BTW, This talk is always updated and started out seven years ago with the title "Your Smartphone is your newsroom" after I had built the MOJO app and mobile video training for RFE/RL broadcast reporters and the S.M.A.R.T. Media Lab.

The lecture has been updated after The New York Times said it was rethinking their reporting to allow them to be led by visual-first journalism, which is a pretty big deal for some.

As you can see, my strategic partners and I have been ready for this for quite a while . . .

Reach out to Nicole Frankenhauser at WAN-IFRA to discuss consulting and coaching offers related to these topics.

People in leadership and development roles as well as educators have visited to pick up some new skills and deepen their experiences all while filming

Can Design Thinking Save Your Newsroom?

"Design thinking is a creative process that yields a business result."

Join me at Lviv Media Forum on 17 May, 2017 as we explore this topic: Can Design Thinking Save Your Newsroom?

The brief:
The capacity to innovate new concepts and to build and launch new solutions for customers in just a few days has become a necessity for every media outlet.

Teams that can problem-solve together have the competitive edge.

This presentation will examine how design thinking works for media makers like 24SATA in Croatia.
