Big Think at BAFTA 2022

We headed over to BAFTA once more on the morning of  Tuesday 14 June for the return of Big Think.

You will soon be able to watch all the sessions on-demand.

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, Big Think returned with a cast that deserved the mother of all drumrolls…

Derry Girls creator and writer Lisa McGee shared insights on her career to date as well as the third and final series of the smash hit comedy.

Editor of ITV News, Rachel Corp, and ITV’s News’ Nina Hossain discussed 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 drew on his new book ‘Go Luck Yourself’ and talked through ways to uncover your organisation’s hidden treasures and how to practice being lucky every day.

Boyd Hilton, Entertainment Director at heat magazine, Contributing Editor of Empire Magazine, and bona fide TV addict, explored TV’s enduring appeal and how it permeates culture.

And we had 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.
