How can you tell your biggest story from every possible angle? How can you be ready for the unexpected? And, what if your biggest story never ends… but just keeps going and going and evolving?

For The Post and so many organizations, our biggest story the last 18 months has been the Election, then the Transition, and now on to the 45th Presidency. We’ll walk you through a range of work from our more than 100 projects, 400+ pages and countless other pieces we built across platforms. We’ll highlight what led to some of our best Election coverage in the newspaper's history, while not shying away from the things we wish we had done differently. Most importantly, we’ll make sure you walk away with a blueprint on how your newsroom might be better prepared for your next big story.
