Expert's comment

It is a real pleasure to participate in Media LIVE!, especially alongside such an interesting range of industry speakers. The biggest plaudits should always go to the student attendees though, and the Media Live! audiences are as engaged, challenging, passionate, talented and articulate an audience of young people as you could hope to meet!
