Training call next week on covering small businesses
The Society of American Business Editors and Writers will hold a training call next Thursday, Sept. 23, for business reporters interested in hearing tips on covering small businesses.
The call will be held at 2 p.m. EST.
Small, private companies are the backbone of local economies. But they’re often harder to cover because they aren’t required to disclose financial documents and they’re sometimes less comfortable dealing with the media. Find out how to dig up information on these companies, learn fresh approaches to covering small firms, and hear about some of the trends that are impacting small business.
The panelists for the call will be:
- Dan Beyers, editor of The Washington Post’s new weekly Capital Business section;
- Rob Daumeyer, editor of the Cincinnati Business Courier, an American City Business Journals publication;
- Hank Gilman, deputy managing editor at Fortune and formerly the managing editor at Fortune Small Business.
