Upcoming Masterclasses

  • Media power, truth and misinformation: why journalists need to be watchdogs in the marketplace of ideas

    Strategic Communication
    With Dr Victoria Fielding

    News media has great power to influence public awareness and knowledge about the world and to define what is real or true. But do they always use this power responsibly? This masterclass presents provocative ideas about the mainstream news media’s power to platform and amplify information, and how often this power is used irresponsibly, contributing to a global crisis of dangerous disinformation, conspiracy, and hate. Using examples as diverse as Donald Trump, climate change, and the Voice referendum, this masterclass argues news media is a powerful source of knowledge underpinning a healthy democracy and society. To use this power responsibly, journalists should be watchdogs in the marketplace of ideas.

  • Start-up or social enterprise: The entrepreneurial challenge for community service organisations

    Academic Director, The Academy by Deloitte
    With Dr Rajeev Kamineni

    “Operating by the smell of an oily rag”—this is a phrase that we keep hearing about many community service organisations. Is it necessary for community service organisations to lead a hand to mouth existence? Do they follow the cycle of opportunity recognition, team formation and resource allocation? Are volunteers a valuable resource or a drag on the resources? Is there a template for a successful community service organisation? These are the key questions that will be answered in this masterclass.
