Our annual industry panel day is an opportunity to meet a range of creative industry speakers, exploring how careers in various media sectors work

This year's industry panel took place on Monday 16 March 2021 via Zoom. The day included a panel discussion and audience Q&A chaired by Hannah Wood and Amanda Bluglass, plus portfolio surgeries in break out rooms.
