A Pulitzer Prize winner,  Mr. Barry has covered many major events since joining The Times in 1995, including the World Trade Center disaster, the destructive wake of Hurricane Katrina, and the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., following the police shooting death of a young black man.

Additional editorial sessions will be lead by University of King’s College Professors Sue Newhook (Improving smartphone video skills) and Fred Vallance-Jones (Demystifying data journalism).

Advertising and sales seminars will be lead by Mary Jane Copps (The Phone Lady), focusing on essential skills to reach more clients, build relationships & increase revenue. Eric Fry (Sandler Training) will lead highly interactive sessions focused on engaging prospects, establishing mutual expectations and asking tough questions to drive customer engagement for greater results.
