I have found myself consistently reaching into the toolkit (that the training) has equipped me with, as the challenges of leading an organization have gotten mind-bogglingly complex.

Participant in training for public media newsroom leaders

I found the sessions with Cronkite’s excellent journalism professors to be particularly valuable. As a mid-career reporter, it was helpful to receive advice from these professors that I can apply to my everyday work.

Participant in training for health care reporters

I just wanted to extend my thanks to you all for your help to produce a great session. I thought the presentation was pointed and relevant and the discussion was very helpful.
