Cathrine Gyldensted (Founder, Constructive Journalism Network, the Netherlands)

Do you want to be able to report even more accurately on the world? Then this workshop is for you.

You will learn: How to grow engagement instead of disengagement with users, what effective depolarising techniques are out there, making you an even better interviewer, moderator or anchor, how to strengthen our interview techniques, by "killing your victim " and "killing the crook" attitudes, making you an even better reporter, portraying the world more accurately, we will look at examples from De Correspondent, Die Zeit, YLE and The BBC - amongst others. Cathrine Gyldensted, the co-founder of the Constructive Journalism Network, will guide you through the values, interviewing techniques and even the software to help you apply a constructive approach to your reporting.

Eric Nuzum, Co-Founder Magnificent Noise, USA

Masterclass: Setting Your Podcast Up For Success

Most podcasts fail before they leave the drawing board because their creators don't ask themselves the right questions. From the largest international companies to the scrappiest independent media creator, almost all those new to podcasting encounter the same set of challenges. In this highly-interactive workshop, podcast consultant and veteran creator Eric Nuzum walks you through a design and development process to "stress test" your podcast or podcast idea, learn from the success of others, focus on what makes your podcast distinct, and examine many common mistakes (and ways to avoid them).

The management challenge: successfully transforming an organisation

Caroline Pouron (Head of Digital, Swedish Radio, Sweden), Christoph Falke (General Manager, Axel Springer Audio, Germany) Moderator: Martin Liss (Media and Management Consultant, Germany) It’s almost a truism that the (media) world changes rapidly, and organisations must follow. But that’s easier said than done.



With many people, careers, traditions and habits that are well established, with psychological, legal and structural challenges that come just as side effects: There’s much to be learned from how big organizations successfully change, sometimes even turning the core of their business, quite radically. In this session we hear from Christoph Falke,  General Manager at Axel Springer Audio. Axel Springer is one of the biggest publication firms in Europe. Their business until recently was mainly newspapers. Then they sold most of that, and changed their focus towards online, audio and TV. Caroline Pouron is Head of Digital at Swedish Radio. The challenges they face as a public service broadcaster are certainly very different from what a commercial enterprise has to work with. However, the challenge in organizational development is certainly just as demanding. This session is for managers that want to know more about how others handle the changes that will happen, whether you actively work with them, or not.

Using AI for personalisation of news and public service values

Olle Zachrison (Head of Digital News Stratey, SR, Sweden) How can we use the power of algorithms to give listeners a more personalised mix of news stories and at the same time promote the values of public service journalism?  



In a three-year project Swedish Radio (SR) has been constructing a new editorial algorithm. The result has revolutionized SR workflows and output. The national newsroom and 26 local stations across the country are now automating their digital audio offering.  Additionally, journalists can now exercise an even more sophisticated editorial control as every story is rated in three dimensions, including its "public service values". The project received the EBU Tech & Innovation Award this year.

The moment interview – enhance the moment

Torben Brandt (Editor in Chief, P1, DR, Denmark)   Learn and feel “The Moment Interview”. A live in-practice demonstration of the method by one of the most experienced interviewers in Denmark.



Storytelling on radio draws on memories and flashbacks. Sometimes an entire story is built on memories. The ‘Moment Interview’ technique brings you – the audience - and the storyteller back into the drama scene or the ‘now’.  In a collaboration with an interviewee - the method will be demonstrated live, in front of the Radiodays Europe audience, bringing his or her story to life. Reconstructing the drama, the movements, the smell, the words and the thoughts of the story. Torben Brandt will take a chance by conducting a Moment Interview on stage with minimal research. Usually he can develop 1-2 moments. Enough to understand the story - and more importantly - the method!
