April 14, 2015 –Dark Arts of Sourcing

Join our panel of seasoned reporters in a discussion about how source nurturing and a nose for anomalies can lead to big scoops. Among the topics we’ll discuss: how to get people to trust you, the importance of meeting in person, using social media to track people down, which formats to use for private communication, the do’s and don’ts of trading information and how to work a conference setting for new contacts.

  • Dana Cimilluca, deputy deals editor at the Wall Street Journal, who recently led the team that broke the news of 3G buying Kraft Foods Group.
  • Dakin Campbell, finance reporter at Bloomberg News, who has led the coverage of Citigroup's trading expansion and recently broke the news about the bank's rogue inflation trader.
  • Lawrence Delevingne, the Big Money enterprise reporter for, who frequently writes on hedge and private equity fund news using anonymous sources.
  • Emily Flitter, money in politics reporter for Reuters who revealed last month that the biggest Wall Street banks were considering cutting political donations to Senate Democrats out of frustration with Elizabeth Warren.
