Our all-day conference took place in two auditoriums with sessions running in parallel in the New Academic Building, Lincolns Inn Fields, LSE.
There were debates on the issue of Trust, but also more practical sessions with journalists describing how they deliver cutting edge trustworthy journalism in the digital age.
The keynote conversation included a session with Nick Davies from the Guardian – a veteran investigative reporter who wrote a book on how he broke the phone-hacking scandal that led to the Leveson inquiry.
