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!

How are Lightning Talks selected?

  • ONA19 attendees pitch ideas throughout the summer.
  • Submitted ideas are vetted by ONA19 volunteers for adherence to this year's theme: What will newsrooms look like in 10 years' time, including roles, structure and physical space?
  • Successful submitters present on Saturday (please note: you must be in attendance Saturday at 4p 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!
