A live blog ran during the Assembly thanks to the contribution of the students at the Department of Communication Sciences Campus of UAB (Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona) and Julien Schiess, Social Media & Strategy Planning, at EBU Training.

The aim was to allow participants to have a new experience of the assembly and get a comprehensive coverage of the event.

Learning Outcomes

(Quotes from participants)


BBC: The chance to meet other PSBs staff and managers + EBU people, and learn about our common issues, solutions and processes; the chance for me to ask myself some questions about our own training plans.

RTS: Le focus des sessions sur des problématiques de formations à un niveau stratégique et en les abordant par des angles différents (par ex., médias sociaux, évolution des métiers).

ZDF: Link to strategy; topics have been "less" training and more strategyoriented. Excellent mixture between practice, target group "young people"
