Attendees of the 2017 LION Summit in Chicago this year can sign up for a 20- to 30-minute appointment with a veteran local independent online news publisher or consultant for one-on-one coaching on a market- or organization-specific problem or challenge you are facing with your local news site or your plans for launching one. Coaches will include longtime publishers with experience in both for-profit and nonprofit news organizations, and conference speakers and consultants including advertising sales expert Eleanor Cippel.
Coaching will be available on Friday afternoon, Oct. 27, during the conference. Answer the questions below, and we'll try to match you up with someone who has expertise or experience related to your issue. Contact LION Executive Director Matt DeRienzo with any questions at [email protected].
