We are delighted that Greg Dyke, media executive, broadcaster and journalist, will be delivering the Annual Lecture on Monday, 28 March.

After the BBC he became Chair of the British Film Council for eight years, Chair of ATG, the biggest theatre company in Europe, and Chair of Brentford Football Club. He was also Chancellor of the University of York (where he studied politics in the seventies) for 11 years. He is currently Chair of The London Film School and Chair of Vine Hotels, a company which owns a series of hotels across the UK. He also owns a fort in Devon where his company is currently building eighty odd houses and apartments.
