Welcome and keynote


During what has been a most tumultuous 18 months on a global political scale, our keynote speaker for this year's show has an almost unrivalled perspective gained from years of service as a diplomat on both sides of the pond. Sir Christopher's time as British Ambassador to the United States coincided with three wars, 9/11 and the impending invasion of Iraq. He has also served as press secretary to Prime Minister Sir John Major. 

Considered a revered voice in the fields of press and diplomacy, Sir Christopher has published books on both themes. In a time when the media's role in our everyday lives, as well as in developments of significant magnitude, is at its most important, a look at how power constructs weave politics and press together has never been more relevant.
