RTDNA21 is a brand-new news leadership retreat unlike any conference you’ve been to before. It’s all about community, connection, service and leadership, and it’s definitely something you don’t want to miss. In 2021, we’re celebrating The Year of the Team with two major pillars: Representation & Resilience. It’s the perfect chance for current and aspiring newsroom leaders at all levels to reconnect with likeminded news leaders, restore your wellbeing, rejuvenate yourself and your team, renew your passion and refresh your skills. We can’t wait to see you there!
Collaborative, practical, hands-on training, not panel after panel
The days of being talked at are done. At RTDNA21, our focus is on training that thrives out of conversations, shared experiences, and real-world exercises that transcend the typical conference lecture room. We’re making learning personal and practical, and we can’t wait to share our lineup of incredible training topics with you.
Inspiration, not lectures
If you’re feeling a little caught up in the grind, or if you are bored to death by another Zoom call, we’ve got the perfect mix for you. Be inspired with keynotes that focus on you as a leader — and as a human. Let’s talk about keeping promises, about building and supporting your team, about doing good, not just looking good. Take a breath and reconnect with peers at some of Denver’s most inspiring spaces.
Connection, not anonymous masses
We’re bringing together leaders at RTDNA21. And not just any leaders — the leaders who want to invest in themselves and their team, who come with an open mind and a hunger for learning. We’ve tossed out the massive conference center and the endless rows of chairs in favor of a more intimate group ready to dive in headfirst. We guarantee you’ll leave Denver with new ideas, new peers and new friends. After all, we’re better together.
Giving back to the local community, not conference room isolation
If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that community is everything, and we’ve set out with the goal of leaving our host conference city a little better than when we found it. At RTDNA21, we’re partnering with local vendors and artists to bring Denver to you. We want to leave a positive footprint on the city by sharing some of its most special elements with you and give back what we can in return.
