Satchwell Lecture 2020

Event Date: May 11, 2020

This year’s annual Satchwell lecture will be held on 11 May 2020 in London. The evening event sees a key figure in the industry address media members in a lecture and Q&A format, followed by networking. 

The lecture is named for founding Society of Editors executive director, Bob Satchwell, who stepped down from his role in 2017 after a ill health. 

Last year’s lecture saw the editor of The Times and longest serving UK national editor, John Witherow, make an address which called for the breakup of tech giants. Full coverage of his speech can be read on the Society’s website

The inaugural Satchwell lecture was given by BBC Director General, Lord Hall. Images can be seen below.
