At our recent A&M Online Event for independent suppliers on October 12th, I shared our strategy for the BBC's radio and music online service and how we go about delivering this working with external suppliers.
It was a great opportunity for us to look at the launch and future of iPlayer Radio and share insights with each other. We had the following speakers:
. Barbara Greenway on the process for winning commissions
. Ben Chapman on popular music sites and events
. Andrew Caspari on classical music and speech radio sites
. Andrew Scott on how to work with BBC technology teams
. Harry Cummings from Softwire on their experience of working with the BBC, warts 'n' all.
It was fantastic that so many independent companies gave their time to come and share experiences. It helps us to improve our approach to commissioning and managing independent companies and to share our plans for the future.
I hope if you were there you found the event useful, and if you weren't you'll find the presentations stimulating.
