We are eagerly looking forward to Tuesday 11 December when we will be meeting one of the UK’s finest broadcast journalists, Gavin Esler, to give his insights to our clients and partners on storytelling in today’s every changing media landscape. If you are interested in attending, please see the RSVP details below.
Gavin has covered a real mixture of issues and topics in his career, from the troubles in Ireland and the plight of prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, to the present day issues on BBC2’s Newsnight. Throughout his career he has interviewed world leaders ranging from Lady Thatcher, David Cameron, Gordon Brown, Tony Blair, John Major, King Abdullah of Jordan and President Chirac to President Clinton, President Carter, Nicaragua’s President Daniel Ortega, Ed Miliband and Israel’s Shimon Peres.
In the arts and culture programmes he anchors for BBC World he has also interviewed writers and artists ranging from V S Naipaul, Seamus Heaney, Javier Marias and Anita Desai to Jose Carreras, Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda, Angelina Jolie and Penelope Cruz, plus numerous film-makers including John Boorman, Peter Bogdanovich, Terry Jones and Stephen Frears.
As an agency we pride ourselves on our ability to tell stories for brands, which of course means ensuring relevance to both the media and end-users. Gavin has met some of the world’s greatest leaders and has experienced their ability to tell stories – to influence people, countries, friends, and foes. The session should be a fascinating insight for all attendees and give the audience some real food for thought.
After the initial presentation from Gavin we’ll be opening up the floor to a Q&A and book signing session. Gavin currently has a new book out called ‘Lessons From The Top’ and all attendees will receive a free copy, courtesy of 3 Monkeys Communications.
