Media & Telecoms 2019 & Beyond conference
Deloitte and Enders Analysis hosted the Media & Telecoms 2019 & Beyond conference on Thursday 7 March 2019 at the Hilton London Bankside. The event was sponsored by Afiniti, Barclays and Linklaters.
Back again for his third year running, the conference was chaired by David Abraham, former Channel 4 Chief Executive. With a stellar speaker line up, this invitation-only conference was a highly informative and stimulating day. The conference saw over 450 senior attendees come together to hear some of the world’s leading media and communications executives describe and debate the forces shaping their businesses. The conference also featured thought provoking discussion panels focused on advertising, telecoms and news themes. It was particularly poignant to see a 50/50 gender balance on the line up.
From content providers to network operators, digital media platforms to publishers, attendees heard first-hand about the opportunities and challenges of delivering a digital strategy at a global level.

Unfortunately Sharon White, CEO at Ofcom was not able to join us for the conference this year, however Deloitte met up with her in advance to hear her thoughts for 2019 and beyond.
NSPCC Dinner 2019
On 11th July 2019 Claire Enders with co-host Kevin Mathers, Country Sales Director at Google UK, celebrated some of the key achievements the dinners have bought to the cause over the years creating a legacy for the NSPCC and Childline, raising over £12.5m to date. The dinner began with welcoming remarks from Claire and Kevin. The NSPCC then presented some of their most recent triumphs and highlighted the areas that need further support. Actress and Childline ambassador Natalie Dormer provided her perspective on the continued importance of the work that Childline does to protect the welfare of children across the UK.
Each year a select list of 120 CEOs, Chairmen, board members and other senior executives are invited to attend. The continuous support the industry offers was evident in the number of conversations at dinner with offers of lending time and expertise to help the NSPCC achieve their goals and company donations.
