Lightning Talks

  • Saturday – 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM
  • JW Grand Ballrooms 1+2
  • #ONA18LT

Bound to be electrifying, ONA is hosting an energetic round of community-pitched lightning talks where attendees present their Big Idea in Journalism. But they have to keep it short and sweet: five minutes, to be exact! Here's the lineup:

How were Lightning Talks selected?

  1. Registered ONA18 attendees (or those planning to register) pitched ideas throughout the summer.
  2. Submitted topics were vetted by ONA18 volunteers for adherence to this year's theme: "What will my readers / audience / community expect from me in 10 years' time?"
  3. Successful submitters present on Saturday (please note: you must be in attendance Saturday at 2:30p to lead your session

This session is designed for:

  • Everyone! This is a fun, fast-paced and very popular lean-back experience (we’ll have plenty of room, don’t worry!). You’ll be inspired by some great -- and wildly different -- ideas!

This event is generously supported by Gatehouse Media.
