SXSW Report on Trust: Government, Tech & Media

SXSW and Edelman have partnered to launch a special report of the Trust Barometer – Edelman’s annual study on the state of trust in institutions, industries and media. This new edition explores the opinions of the SXSW community – a global audience of individuals who have attended, will attend or are interested in the creative festival.

Join the legendary journalist and news pioneer Dan Rather, Heather Brunner (CEO and Chairwoman of WP Engine, the leading provider of managed WordPress hosting for mission critical websites around the world), Jess Clifton (U.S. Head of Digital, Edelman), moderator Richard Edelman and host Hugh Forrest (chief programming officer for SXSW) as they discuss the Trust findings, explore the landscape and unique differences between the creative and influential community that is SXSW, and the entities with which we interact. Come early to ensure you get a seat.
