The Creative Circle team will be on hand in the exhibit hall of the conference and Bill Ostendorf, our president, will lead four workshops at the convention.
Bill's sessions will include:
"Print isn't dead (and what you can do to keep it that way)!" This session will June 15 at 5 p.m.
"New content strategies" is about learning to create stories and photos readers will want to read. June 16 at 4 p.m.
"Ten of the dumbest mistakes newspapers make and why we make them" is a lesson in not following the lemming-like movements of the newspaper industry.
"Why Facebook and Google are not our friends," is a reminder to newspaper publishers that these companies would love to do no less than replace newspapers as the center of the local advertising and information matrix.
