Long term success is built by mobilising and engaging the very best talent both on and off screen. Whilst progress has been made on diversity, issues such as class, social mobility and the under-representation of some viewpoints are now rising up the agenda. With the contribution of some young people trying to take their first steps into broadcasting, the panellists debate the issues and the solutions in this important area.
Tim Hincks, co-CEO of Expectation Entertainment, chairs a panel including:

Greg Dyke, broadcaster and former BBC Director-General

Julie Hesmondhalgh, Actor

Anne Mensah, Head of Drama, Sky

Fraser Nelson, Editor, The Spectator

James Purnell, Director of Radio and Education, BBC
