IBC is thrilled to announce that Keith Underwood, Director of Strategy and Technology at Channel 4, has accepted the role of Guest Chair of the Conference for IBC2018. The position involves acting as the figurehead and brand ambassador for IBC, setting the vision for the programme and increasing awareness and engagement with IBC across both traditional and converging media markets.

“The media industry is experiencing profound shifts in consumer behaviour, competitive dynamics, and technological innovation.” Keith Underwood said. “Relentless disruption of established business models presents new opportunities and challenges for players across the value chain. In this context, I am excited to help bring together a broad and diverse range of contributors at IBC who will share practical learnings of how best to harness the power of disruptive forces.”
