September 2014

The new RTS "term" gets underway with a bang this month. We start with the keenly anticipated London Conference on 9 September. I am thrilled we have assembled such an exciting line-up of speakers for the event, "Power, Politics & The Media", which will be held at Kings Place.
Our keynotes speakers – 21st Century Fox President and COO Chase Carey, Discovery Networks International President JB Perrette and the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Sajid Javid MP – will set the tone for what is sure to be a memorable occasion. The day will end with Lorraine Heggessey chairing a discussion with Jeremy Darroch and Tony Hall.
They will be talking about the challenges our industry faces in bringing on the next generation and addressing increasing skills shortages in the technology, software engineering and craft areas.
Following on from the success of last year's Cambridge Convention, full paying delegates are able to nominate a "Next Generation Leader" from their organisation to attend the London Conference free of charge.
Our first early-evening event of the autumn is on 23 September. I am very pleased to announce that Tim Davie, CEO of BBC Worldwide, will be in conversation with Channel 4 News presenter Cathy Newman.
Book your tickets soon for this fireside chat at The Hospital Club in London's Covent Garden.
Meanwhile, I am delighted that the inaugural RTS Undergraduate Bursaries will be announced this month. Watch this space.
