DPP Leaders’ Briefing 2022
The biggest UK-Ireland media event — the DPP Leaders’ Briefing 2022 — took place in London on 16 and 17 November. DPP CEO Mark Harrison summed up the focus at this year’s conference:
“72% of companies made people-related topics — such as wellbeing; diversity, equity and inclusion; ways of working; skills — a high level or sub theme. This is very striking but it isn’t the real story of this year’s event. That sits firmly with the determination to achieve operational effectiveness — an internal focus on simply doing things better.”
Who was there?
Broadcasters, production companies, post production companies and tech vendors gathered in Bishopsgate in London to take the temperature of the media and broadcast industries.
They heard from TikTok, Warner Bros. Discovery, BBC, A+E Networks, A+E Networks EMEA, PBS Distribution, Associated Press, Thomson Reuters, ITN, ITV, BT Sport, Channel 4, PA Media, DAZN, Google Cloud, IMG Studios, Newen Studios, News UK, NRK, RTE, RTL Nederland, Sky, SVT, TV2 Denmark, VICE Media Group, Banijay, Yle, and ZDF.
What insights emerged?
The DPP published a summary report on the conference and noted that the 2022 event saw a significant strategic shift.
It concluded that, after years of emphasis on building new direct to consumer services, the priority now is efficiency. Multiple speakers highlighted the need for their organisation to become more streamlined, and better at getting the basics right.
