Big Think at BAFTA 2022

Every so often at Thinkbox we stop beating the magnificent drums of TV advertising for an entire morning.

Instead, we invite a host of magnificent thinkers from all sorts of backgrounds and disciplines on to the stage at BAFTA to play thought-provoking rhythms on all manner of drums.

We call it Big Think, and with good reason.

This year, on Tuesday 14 June, Big Think returns with a cast that deserves the mother of all drumrolls…

Editor of ITV News, Rachel Corp, and ITV’s News’ Nina Hossain will discuss news journalism today, from re-engaging those who have turned away to dealing with the culture wars and the challenges of social distribution.

Lucky Generals’ brilliant Andy Nairn will draw on his new book ‘Go luck yourself’ and talk through ways to uncover your organisation’s hidden treasures and how to practice being lucky every day.

Boyd Hilton, Entertainment Director at Heat magazine, Deputy Editor at Pilot TV magazine, and bona fide TV addict, will explore TV’s enduring appeal and how it permeates culture.

And we will have a crack team pitching one thing to change the industry for the better, including Ally Owen from Brixton finishing School, Chaka Sobhani from Leo Burnett, Fiona Ball from Sky, and Jake Dubbins from The Conscious Advertising Network.

So, not too shabby.
