Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton will deliver the global leaders keynote at the RTS Cambridge Convention where they will speak about how their production company HiddenLight facilitates their global approach to storytelling.
In conversation with Dame Mary Beard, the Clintons will discuss their view of the world, the stories that fascinate them and their production company HiddenLight.
Also joining the roster of speakers is England football manager Gareth Southgate OBE, who will close the conference in conversation with broadcaster, journalist, and author Clare Balding OBE. Southgate will discuss what Britishness means.
RTS CEO Theresa Wise said: “The eminent combination of Hillary and Chelsea Clinton in conversation with Mary Beard promises an erudite and unmissable session, and a great addition to our packed programme of industry heavyweights who are set to share their insights on Broadcasting Britain.
“We are very much looking forward to welcoming all the speakers and the wider industry to Cambridge for what is set to be an impactful and thought-provoking set of sessions.”
Ben McOwen Wilson, UK and Ireland managing director of principal sponsor YouTube, and chair of the RTS Cambridge Convention 2021, added: “I am very much looking forward to this year’s convention and to welcoming RTS members back to Cambridge for what is set to be another thrilling event.
“I am particularly delighted to be welcoming Gareth Southgate OBE to deliver the conference’s closing keynote - as we all saw at this Summer’s Euros, Gareth and his young team embody the best of the diverse and inspirational talent that this country has to offer.
“As someone who has done so much to bring England together, I can think of no one better suited to close our discussions on how the industry must evolve and adapt to represent a more diverse, creative and, genuinely representative, modern Britain.”
