2 Oct 2018 12:30 - 18:30

Mirrors or Movers is the world's premier conference dedicated to responsible business for the media sector.

At the sixth Mirrors or Movers conference, we will hear from experts and practitioners at the heart of events and initiatives that have changed the industry. Our speakers are drawn from across the industry and will tell important stories and compelling first-hand accounts about the role that media plays in society, as the sector grapples with fundamental changes in the way people consume media.

Building on the inaugural Mirrors or Movers report and our latest on The Future of Responsible Media, we will bring together leading experts and practitioners to debate how media influences society and what responsibility media companies should take for the social impacts of their content. Attended by opinion formers, academics, NGOs and media professionals, the event is free and open to all, and will represent media in all its diverse channels - from digital to TV, print, advertising, expos and events, and more.

Mirrors or Movers V

Responsible media in a post-truth age

31 May 2017 12:30 - 17:00

Mirrors or Movers is the world's premier conference dedicated to responsible business for the media sector.

At the fifth Mirrors or Movers conference, we focused on a phenomenon everyone’s talking about: fake news. We looked at the implications for the wider sector and formats, asking our expert speakers; as trust is tested, what disruption can we expect across media formats?

Building on the inaugural Mirrors or Movers report and our latest report on The Future of Responsible Media, we brought together leading experts and practitioners to debate how media influences society and what responsibility media companies should take for the social impacts of their content. Attended by opinion formers and media professionals from 35 major media companies, the conference explored the implications of ‘post-fact’ for the media sector.
