Event Details

These have been bruising times for the Press.

Scandals about the conduct of some journalists have  not only brought down journalists, senior executives and one of the largest newspapers in Britain, but it has also prompted the resignation of the head of the Press Complaints Commission and raised questions about the  the future of press regulation. Those who seek to simplify the issues usually offer two options: press self-regulation, or government regulation. But others are looking further afield and so we're asking, "Is there a Third Way?"

To debate that issue the Society of Editors and the Digital Editors Network will be co-presenting the 14th Journalism Leaders Forum at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston.

Panelists are:

  • Bob Satchwell, executive director of the Society of Editors
  • Bettina Peters, Director of the Global Forum for Media Development
  • Prof Chris Frost, author of Journalism Ethics and Regulation
  • Martin Moore, director of the Media Standards Trust and a founder of HackedOff.
  • Martin Wainwright, northern editor of The Guardian.
  • Prof Peter Cole, former head of journalism at both UCLAN and Sheffield universities and co-author of Newspaper Journalism.

Chairing the discussion is Michael Wiliams, head of journalism ethics at UCLAN and former deputy editor of The Independent on Saturday. 

To attend the open Forum at 6pm in Greenbank Lecture Theatre - as well as a networking reception from 5pm - please register soonest. There is no charge (though donations are most welcome), but seating is limited. 

 Also in Preston earlier on the day of the Forum is the Truth Telling master class and the autumn meeting of the Digital Editors Network, with speakers from the Manchester Evening News, BusinessDesk.com  and Paul Ekman International. The following day, Grig Davidovitz of RGB Media will also lead the News Show! master class on innovative design online, on mobile and on tablets.

For more information about these and other activities of the UCLAN's Journalism Leaders Programme, which partners with media companies to develop leadership talent and innovative digital business solutions, contact François Nel by email or  Twitter.
