Week 1


James Harding - CEO of Tortoise Media and former Editor of The Times

James Harding is the former Director of BBC News and the youngest person in history to have been made Editor of The Times. His current venture, Tortoise Media, aims to revolutionise the way we interact with the media and offers an innovative approach to modern-day journalism. In an era of fake news, political unrest and media distrust, Tortoise aims to create a culture of clarity with its ‘open journalism’. This promotes active engagement from its members, creating an unscripted and transparent forum of debate, primarily via their hugely popular ‘ThinkIns’ which take place on a weekly basis. These sessions bring together industry experts and members of the general public to discuss topics ranging from LGBTQ+ rights to the rise of Artificial Intelligence.

Wednesday 16th October, University College, 18:30-19:30
