Media Leaders Lunch

A Mediatel News event - for media influencers

Wednesday 18 September 2019

Join the editors of three UK newsbrands; Alison Phillips, Camilla Tominey and Emma Tucker, plus a host of senior media journalists and commentators from Mediatel’s own editorial line-up for an exclusive lunch.

Held at the Science Museum’s fantastic new venue, Illuminate, the lunch is a chance to network with other media leaders, ask questions to our panels of editors and columnists, and sit with some of the most influential journalists working in media to quiz them off the record.

‘Media Leaders’ is the weekly must-read newsletter from Mediatel News, fronted by celebrated journalist Raymond Snoddy, previously of the Financial Times and BBC.

Since launch, Mediatel News has evolved into a showcase of thought leadership from across the sector and our other regular columnists now include Dominic Mills, Jan Gooding, Tracy Follows, Bob Wootton, Nick Manning, Richard Marks and our own editor, David Pidgeon.

Together, they are read by a who’s-who of our industry each week, the most influential execs and media leaders themselves.

The Media Leaders Lunch will get many of these people together in one room – with a pre-lunch aperitif of ‘Any Questions’, followed by a post-lunch panel with major newsbrand editors.

Join senior executives from brands, agencies, media owners, industry bodies and investment companies at what we expect to be a hugely popular event.

David Pidgeon, Editor, Newsline
