Keynote speaker for the conference is Professor Peter Greste who will draw on his experience in Egypt where he was convicted for terrorism and “false news” offences, and discusses how the situation happened in one of the world’s most advanced democracies, what that means for community broadcasting, and what his organisation, the Alliance for Journalists’ Freedom, is proposing is done about it.
Stephen Pead will present a sponsorship workshop on how stations can leverage and maximise opportunities, build partnerships and gain revenue.
