Join CNW for a Breakfast with the Media event as we host Robert Cribb, Haligonian and award-winning investigative journalist with the Toronto Star for a presentation on how journalists research in-depth stories and how organizations can respond to potential public relations nightmares. Learn the kinds of questions investigative journalists are likely to ask, and how your reactions can impact the outcome — for better or worse. Robert will also talk about his experience with the launch of Star Touch, the Toronto Star’s new tablet edition and what this means for the iconic publication.
