If you were in Oxford last week you might have spotted delegates from Skoll World Forum.  This global event for social entrepreneurs took place at Said Business School and New Theatre Oxford, and we’re proud to have handled media production again this year.

The three-day event featured a host of panel discussions, interviews and delegate-led discussions, and our team of 38 camera-people, sound recordists, editors and producers all worked together to handle video capture, live streaming and run the presentations.  It was also a real pleasure to work with event specialist Heather Mason and her excellent team at Caspian Agency.   

 

Being behind the camera at Skoll World Forum is always inspiring as it attracts delegates and speakers from all countries and cultures.  This year Al Gore gave an amazing keynote on climate change, and Mary Robinson, now president of the Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice, took part in panel discussions on women in leadership and the challenges of carbon emissions reduction post-Paris.  To get a feel for the event, take a look at the 2016 highlights here.
