There will be more radio decision makers than ever before represented at this year’s event, with Bob Shennan discussing the future of the medium and its place within the BBC as he takes part in a keynote Q&A with 5 Live's Rachel Burden.

 

Their discussion will address dramatic changes in how the BBC commissions radio programmes, as well as how this affects both the BBC’s in-house and independent production sector in the nations and regions.

 

The Archers editor Huw Kennair-Jones will take part in another session looking at the astonishing success of the world’s longest running radio soap opera. He'll be joined by Jessica Dromgoole, who will explain how Radio 4's epic four-year long World War One drama Home Front is produced.

 

Steve Titherington, senior Commissioning Editor at the BBC World Service will talk about fresh approaches to programme making, while comedy from Wales is celebrated as we meet the stars of the hit Radio Wales comedy The Unexplainers.

 

Nations and regions producers and production companies will also get the chance to pitch their ideas to a plethora of commissioning editors. This year's conference includes decision makers from Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 3, 5 Live, the BBC World Service, Radio Wales, Radio Cymru, Radio Ulster, BBC Learning, Penguin Random House and the commercial radio sector.

 

The Nations and Regions Media Conference, now in its 23rd year, is broadly themed Working Futures: Our Brilliant Careers and celebrates excellence in a climate of opportunity outside London, bringing together a host of major players from the world of broadcasting and production across the UK.

 

•       On the evening of Tue 28th March Hollywood director and former World In Action investigative journalist Paul Greengrass will be joined by Kirsty Wark and Channel 4’s Head of News and Current Affairs Dorothy Byrne, to launch a special award in memory of legendary former World In Action editor Ray Fitzwalter, who died last year.

Ruth Pitt, chair of the Nations and Regions Conference Steering Committee, said: “Alongside an action packed day of TV debate we’ve got an outstanding radio line-up for producers working in that medium across the UK.

 

“And we’re delighted that Bob Shennan, Rachel Burden and Huw Kennair-Jones will be joining us in what I’m confident will be an unmissable event.”

 

Beth Hewitt, Director of Nations and Regions Media Conference, said: “These are extremely exciting times for those working in the broadcast and digital media industries and in particular for UK productions out of London. As we move closer towards Brexit, NARM 2017 offers all those working in the nations and regions some fantastic opportunities to take stock of where the media industry is currently positioned and to examine the future landscapes.

<![CDATA[Fast Web Media unveils new brand image]]> http://www.mediacityuk.co.uk/p/fast-web-media-unveils-new-brand-image http://www.mediacityuk.co.uk/p/fast-web-media-unveils-new-brand-image#When:12:24:09Z MediaCityUK based digital marketing agency Fast Web Media (FWM) has unveiled its new brand identity which pays homage to its rich history in Manchester’s digital marketing scene.

The well-established Manchester and London-based agency has over 20 years’ experience in the digital marketing industry. They have worked with some of the most recognisable names across a variety of sectors including the Premier League, Gfinity eSports, the BBC, Molson Coors and Bravissimo.

The rebranding conveys FWM’s guiding principles to deliver on its promises and provide clarity to its customers, heralding a sense of mutuality among employees irrespective of changes in goals, strategies, type of work, structure and hierarchy. FWM prides itself on being experts in the digital marketing sector and empowering ambitious businesses with the knowledge and expertise they require to succeed in this field.

The rebrand was driven by mporium Group’s acquisition in 2015, which gave FWM an opportunity to reassess its brand, services and overall image. Through a series of workshops, the team set about creating the new FWM visual identity over a ten-month period, complete with a new website and logo.

Joana Ferreira, Senior Marketing Manager at FWM said: “The new brand takes inspiration from Manchester’s symbolic worker bee – which reflects the region’s reputation as a hive of activity and hard-working mentality – and delivers a clear objective to drive interest from potential clients, partners and employees, and speak to visitors clearly and without clutter.

“The team has shown tremendous dedication in delivering the rebrand, with many sacrificing their spare time, so it’s fantastic to see the branding in action across our new website and within our office.”

Head of Agency, Stephen O’Malley, added: “Our performance and growth over the last twelve months is a testament to the hard-working team of experienced marketers, designers and developers we have at FWM. Manchester’s growing reputation for digital expertise is a great selling point, and following the rebrand we’re anticipating another strong year and are already looking to recruit another member of our team”.

FWM has grown considerably over the last twelve months, welcoming nine new full-time members of staff across its web development, search and marketing departments. The company also signed deals with a number of new clients, providing SEO, content marketing and eCRM for leading electronic cigarette brand Blu; technical development, search marketing and customer-centric strategy and management for Gfinity eSports; and paid search and social media marketing for BBC Children in Need.

Based at its MediaCityUK campus, the University of Salford's BA Journalism is now fully accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC), which is backed by major media organisations including MediaCityUK occupiers the BBC and ITV, as well as ITN, Sky News and Channel 4 News.

BJTC multimedia experts awarded their kite mark – bestowed only when journalism courses have proven they meet stringent industry standards - after visiting the programme team and their 350 students at the University’s MediaCityUK campus.

Paul Broster, Director of Journalism, said: “The BJTC were clearly impressed with our fantastic staff, facilities and programme but also, crucially, our students and their work.

“We can’t thank our students enough. A big part of the accreditation process involves the BJTC panel speaking at length to students and watching them at work in our newsroom. They represented themselves superbly and produced some brilliant journalism for the web, TV, radio and print.”  

BA Journalism is led by Senior Lecturer and former newspaper editor Sara (CORR) Hadwin, who oversaw the successful accreditation bid.

The team includes BBC broadcast journalists Andrew Lindsay, Caroline Cheetham and ITV Granada Reports correspondent and presenter Andrew Fletcher.

It also boasts former BBC World Service journalist Marek Bekerman, BBC Sport’s Martin Hamer, Ian Wood, former deputy editor of the Manchester Evening News, national newspaper journalist Debbie Manley and former Coronation Street press officer Sara Eyre.

The award means that the Journalism Directorate, based in the School of Arts and Media, now has accreditation at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Its long-standing PGDip/MA Journalism programme is accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ).

This academic year, both programmes are hosting more than 120 student placements with organisations including the BBC, ITV, the Manchester Evening News, Key 103, Global Radio, Manchester United FC and Lancashire Cricket Club.

Paul Broster added: “We are proud that Salford is now undoubtedly a major centre for journalism education in the UK. Our courses are extremely popular year-on-year because of our industry connections, a superb facility at the heart of MediaCityUK and great lecturers.

“This latest accreditation is also further evidence that our standards and quality clearly match what the industry is looking for in the next generation of talent.”

Children’s cancer research charity, Kidscan, is calling all thrill-seeking fundraisers to get fired up and take on the ultimate challenge, walking across hot coals on the MediaCityUK piazza.

Kidscan’s Fire Walk Fundraiser will take place on Thursday 9th March from 5pm, and the charity is daring like-minded thrill-seeking fundraisers to join the fight against childhood cancer and take part in the challenge.

Fire Walks are designed to challenge people to overcome their fears, inspiring them to do things they didn’t think were possible. This unique, fundraising initiative is the perfect challenge for team building and individual development alike.

Vicky Profit, Event Manager at Kidscan said: “Just imagine stepping out of your comfort zone and walking across hot coals, what a buzz that would be! I’d urge everyone to pluck up the courage to overcome their fears and join me – it will be an unforgettable experience. Plus it’s all for such a good cause – we want every child with cancer to survive and thrive.”

Money raised from the event will go towards Kidscan’s pioneering research into discovering new, targeted treatments for childhood cancers – treatments that are gentler for children’s bodies, reducing short and long term side effects. Kidscan does not receive any statutory funding, so relies on the generosity of businesses and the general public.

Cancer is the leading cause of death in children in the UK with around 1,600 children being diagnosed each year. Unfortunately 1 in 5 of these will not survive. Through ground breaking research, Kidscan is striving to change that, giving every child with cancer the treatment they need to survive and thrive.

Book your place here: bit.ly/SignupFirewalk2017

The entry fee is £15 per person with a minimum sponsorship of £150.

Those aged 16-17 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and supervised at all times.

Through a mix of sector-focused coaching from PwC, UP and their clients, The Future of Health programme will enable 12 start-ups to grow their business and change the face of health.

The Future of Health connects fast growth scale-up businesses and large organisations in the North West to help drive innovation and create new business opportunities within the health, medical and life sciences sectors. The programme will be hosted at The Landing, MediaCityUK’s digital and technology enterprise hub which is home to over 100 tech start-ups and scale-ups.

Participating companies will receive privileged access to executive-level mentors and sponsors, and will leverage PwC’s and UP’s extensive network of thought leaders, industry executives and health-tech specialists. Through the programme's private events, hosted in both Manchester and London, the start-ups have a great opportunity to pitch their business to potential investors and industry leading healthcare organisations, who themselves engage with the latest innovative products and can collaborate with the cutting edge technology.

Being based at The Landing will also give successful applicants, mentors and sponsors access to some of the most advanced UX, IoT and VR testing facilities in the UK. Future of Health participants can enjoy all the amenities and benefits of The Landing’s recently opened Launch co-working space, where the programme will be based for its three-month duration.

Iwan Griffiths, PwC’s North West regional chairman said: "PwC has launched The Future of Health in order to continue our support of entrepreneurs and small businesses. Healthtech will significantly change the way health services are delivered and is key to solving the challenge of providing better services to an ageing population at a reasonable cost.”

“Collaborating with innovative health businesses and connecting them to our client base provides great opportunities for all involved as well as the wider population who use health services.  Greater Manchester and the North West are at the forefront of health reform and have a thriving start-up community which we are keen to support through The Future of Health programme." 

Danny Meaney from UP commented: “UP specialises in building businesses that have the ambition and potential to transform industries by connecting corporates seeking to create real impact through more effective innovation, with later stage start-ups that are ready to scale up their businesses.”

“For us, Manchester is the ideal location for such a project, given its rich ecosystem of industry-leading corporates, NHS Trusts, university research institutes, successful health and life science businesses, and an appetite for investment in the health and medtech sectors.”

Maya Dibley, head of programmes and partnerships at The Landing said: “Hosting The Future of Health is great news for The Landing and the whole of the North West. Health and medtech are some of the most dynamic sectors in the world currently, and the commercial potential for any successful business in this space is massive.”

“This programme will also help put Manchester on the global map for health technology innovation.”
