Keynote Speakers 2013
Frank Cottrell Boyce author, screenwriter and collaborator on the Olympic Opening Ceremony opened CMC as the Keynote speaker on 3 July in Sheffield’s iconic Crucible Theatre. Delegates were entranced by his relaxed exploration of the hugely inspiring theme “we are the story”.
Jeff ”Swampy” Marsh took to the stage for the Thursday Creative Keynote, taking delegates on a tour of the development and production of his hit series Phineas and Ferb with some invaluable tips on dealing with “network notes” along the way.
A huge thanks from CMC to both of them and to everyone who spoke this year.
