Over the last decade, online technologies have transformed the way that people view, read, create and deliver media. However, while technology has leapt ahead, the business models underpinning the media industry have often not kept pace.

With an audience of media leaders and The Club at The Ivy members, a panel of senior commercial leaders will discuss how the media industry is changing and what this means for the business of media.

While each session examines a different facet of the media industry, digital disruption remains the constant factor. These sessions are designed to encourage cross-sharing of thoughts, ideas and models so that our industry continues to evolve and thrive over the years to come.

The Business of International Television
The breakfast series began on the 14th of September with "The Business of News," a discussion on how the economics of news are changing. The latest session, held on 24th January, discussed how the economics of international television are changing, given the rise in OTT services. 

Hosted by Alvarez & Marsal's Head of Media, Paul Naha-Biswas, and moderated by media commentator Kate Bulkley, our panel discussion participants included:

  • Wim Ponnet, Group Director of Strategy and Corporate Development, Endemol Shine Group
  • Stuart Bacter, President, eOne Television International
  • Chris Whiteley, VP of Business Development, Netflix EMEA
  • Jamie Friend, CFO, Turner EMEA
