For the first time, Fair Media Council is offering certification opportunities to address one of the most important but often overlooked areas within an organization: communications.
In the Grand Ballroom of the Garden City Hotel, the luncheon of Fair Media Council’s The News Conference: Real & Powerful features John Carreyrou, the investigative reporter who uncovered the fraud behind Theranos’ blood-testing and Elizabeth Holmes. The story involves a larger look at the culture of Silicon Valley and how it enabled Theranos to become a powerhouse, with a valuation of more than $9 billion and a board of directors that included the likes of Henry Kissinger and former Sec. of State George Shultz.
John Carreyrou is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter at The Wall Street Journal. For his extensive coverage of Theranos, Carreyrou was awarded the George Polk Award for Financial Reporting, the Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism in the category of beat reporting, and the Barlett & Steele Silver Award for Investigative Business Journalism.
The Fair Media Council’s The News Conference: Real & Powerful runs 8 am – 4 pm on Thursday, Nov. 29 at the posh Garden City Hotel, offering old-world-style luxury & conveniently situated across the street from LIRR’s Garden City Station. No taxi needed!
