New Speakers announced for The Story – Danny Miller, Gary Carter and Simon Munnery

We’ve already sold nearly half the tickets for The Story in Feb, so get your tickets while you can! And to convince you to come along next year, here’s three new speakers who will be joining us next year:

Danny Miller is co-founder and CEO of Human After All, a London based creative agency who believe that creativity connects. Danny has recently launched Weapons of Reason, a magazine dedicated to turning knowledge into action. He is also a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on creative economy, where he’s currently exploring open knowledge sharing among the creative industries.

Gary Carter is almost certainly the only international television executive with a Time Out/Dance Umbrella Dance and Performance award.  Gary joined Shine Group in June 2013  working closely with the heads of Shine Germany, the Shine Nordics companies and Shine 360. Prior to joining Shine, Gary was COO of FremantleMedia Group, where he was responsible for leading their overall strategy, ran the group’s central Creative Networks, founded their digital divisions as well as managing its various European production operations. Prior to this he worked for 5 years as Executive Director of Programme Affairs at Endemol International, where he united the group’s intellectual property in one division, oversaw the international roll-out of Big Brother and acquired the production licences across Europe for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

Simon Munnery has been described by Time Out as ‘an avant-garde comedy god’. He has recently been featured on Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, The Culture Show, Alternative Comedy Experience, and The News Quiz. He is a British Comedy, Perrier, and Barry Award nominee, and Chortle and Sony Radio Award winner. His latest project Fylm stabs at the void between film and theatre, involving visual sketches performed by Simon amongst the audience, and projected live on screen.

So that’s your next three speakers. It’s already shaping up to be another diverse, challenging and inspiring day, so if you haven’t got your tickets yet – get them now!
