Catch Bill at the Tennessee Press Association convention

He's leading two sessions and some private critiques


Creative Circle Media Solutions will be an exhibitor and Bill Ostendorf will lead two sessions at the Summer Convention of the Tennessee Press Association.

Bill's popular workshop "Print isn't dead (and what you can do to keep it that way)" will be followed by a newsroom-oriented show – "New content strategies" which is aimed at helping newsrooms rethink how they cover the news.

Bill will also lead private critiques for a number of attendees. "People love feedback and this is an opportunity for them to bring anything they want feedback on – their branding, some ads, their newspaper, a special section, a web site, a new product – and I try to give them three to a half dozen ways they can improve that product or item," says Ostendorf. "Typically those improvements are pretty easy and fast so they can go home with actionable ideas."

Our classified system partner, The Newspaper Manager, will also be exhibiting.
