Journalism Week - 15 - 18 November 2016
Over the years, Journalism Week has established a reputation for bringing some of the key figures in the industry to Leeds, and this November will be no exception. Journalism Week will be opened by Tom Bower - Investigative historian, broadcaster and journalist.
A former producer and reporter for BBC Television, he is the author of many books, including biographies of Robert Maxwell, Mohamed Fayed, Gordon Brown, Richard Branson and Conrad Black. Broken Dreams, his investigation into corruption in English football, won the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award in 2003 and his recent bestsellers include No Angel: The Secret Life of Bernie Ecclestone and Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell.
His most recent book is
Broken Vows: Tony Blair: The Tragedy of Power, which The Times described as "Probably the most explosive book of the year".
Joining Tom are a range of high profile journalists from some of the UK's biggest regional and national media outlets. Students will hear from Guardian Columnist Erwin James and BBC Sports News Correspondent Richard Conway. There will also be talks from BBC Top Gear's Digital Product Lead, Anthony Dhanendran; ITV News' Diversity Consultant, Vidar Hjardeng; and Sheffield Star Cartoonist, James Whitworth.
