Great Britain – London – Leadership Series with Anne Morrison 2017

The London Young Leaders were privileged to hear from Anne Morrison on the London Capital Club as part of the Leadership Series.

Anne Morrison, is currently chair of BAFTA’s International Committee and formerly Chair of BAFTA from 2014 to 2016, the second woman to hold the position in its 70 year history. In her television career, having worked as a producer/director, she held senior management positions for 20 years at the BBC, and as Controller of Documentaries and Contemporary Factual, was responsible for hundreds of hours of factual television including many award-winning programs.

Anne, a native of Belfast, shared her stories of growing up in Northern Ireland, and her experiences working in London as a female executive in BBC. Anne shared such marvelous life wisdoms with the Young Leaders, including warning them to ‘diversify their self-esteem’. It was a real pleasure to hear from Anne, and we look forward to her speaking to more Young Leaders in the future.

Many thanks to Anne Morrison for sharing her time, and wisdom and to our sponsors Porters and CHS group for kindly sponsoring the event.
