Rory Sutherland focuses a lifetime’s experience in the creative industries on the funding of kids’ media, sharing a view of the sector as seen by the ad men. Rory will challenge advertisers, government and the industry to think differently, posing some challenging questions and inviting delegates to think the unthinkable. How might advertisers re-think their approach? How might producers broaden their view of where the funding can come from? What might government offer and where does children’s media fit in the “Big Society”? With contributions from key conference participants, this session aims to start a debate which continues in the year ahead.
