Paul Lashmar is subject leader for Journalism@Brunel, an award winning investigative journalist and now a research academic. As a multimedia journalist he covered many of the major stories of the last 30 years. He is an adviser to TCIJ. “I have known Andrew, David and James for many years and they are all exceptional journalists who have consistently broken major stories.
They are examples of what great journalism is all about, as they are relentless, smart and act in the public interest. These sessions promise to be fascinating, plus there will be one or two amusing anecdotes from the past,” he says. This is the UK’s only investigative journalism training conference for journalists and any one interest in improving their investigative skills.
